Aston Villa’s Agent Payments 2012 and Premier League Compairson Table

Benteke – Villa’s biggest signing in the last year

Aston Villa Agent Payments 2012

 

While the below table again provides evidence to Manchester City’s strategy of buying the League Championship, it shows Villa’s recent restraint in the big-money player transfer market, despite the figure surpassing the amounts made by Villa to agents in the past two seasons.

The club’s agent spend is in the bottom half of the table (11th). Questions of ambition maybe raised, but at the same time it could be considered a more astute policy of not wasting cash as in previous years. I’m sure there were a few agents laughing about their cuts from inflated-price sales such as Stephen Warnock and Alan Hutton’s.
