Peterborough United spent the sixth highest amount of money on agents and intermediaries out of all League One clubs, according to new figures released by the FA.

Posh spent £148,900 between February 2, 2016 and January 31, 2017, far below the £608,465 spent by struggling Charlton and £496,605 by rivals MK Dons.

The top two in the division, Sheffield United and Bolton Wanderers, spent more than £280,000 each, followed by bottom club Coventry City which spent £237,814.

The club which spent the least amount of money was Oldham Athletic. The Latics paid out a paltry £4,430.

In total, League One clubs paid out just over £3 million.

In the Premier League, Manchester City spent more than £26 million, slightly more than Chelsea and £7 million more than Manchester United.

In the Championship, Newcastle were the biggest spenders, forking out nearly £10.5 million, while only Portsmouth in League Two spent more than Posh.

Pompey paid out £175,344, while Hartlepool were the only club in the top five divisions not to spend any money on agents or intermediaries.

Incredibly, non-league side Forest Green Rovers in the National League splashed out £174,613 which was more than 19 League One clubs.
