QPR and Chelsea: Among the big spenders

Struggling QPR paid the third highest amount to agents in 2012, their figure of £6,818,688 topped only by Manchester City and Liverpool.

City were the biggest spenders on £10,537,982 - up from £9,663,700 - with Liverpool second having shelled out £8,600,444 - an increase from £7,000,242.99.

But it was Rangers, who brought in a number of high-profile signings over the summer including Julio Cesar, Park Ji sung, Jose Bosingwa and Esteban Granero, whose payments stood out, with their figure having almost trebled from £2,499,214 in 2010/11.

Tottenham (£6,595,905) were fourth on the list, followed by Champions League winners Chelsea (£6,490,382), Arsenal (£5,580,873) and West Ham (£4,436,992), while Manchester United's figure dropped to £3,681,580 from £4,457,103.

Promoted Southampton had the lowest figure (£646,106), with Swansea - last year's lowest spenders - second-bottom of the list despite their payments having risen from £248,633 to £1,100,845.

The overall amount spent by the 20 top-flight clubs was £77,003,130 (806 transactions), compared to £71,868,749.94 (765 transactions) for the previous 12 months.
