Barclays Premier League clubs cut their spending on agents' fees by more than £3million last year but still spent a combined total in excess of £67million.

The latest figures to be released by the Premier League show that payments to agents by clubs on behalf of players fell from over £70.7million last year to £67.1million to the year ended September 30, 2010.

Champions Chelsea topped the list of big spenders with a whopping £9.3million shelled out to agents in the period under review.

But last season's leaders, Manchester City, halved their outlay from £12.8million to just under £6million.

Chelsea again spent over £9million on agents' fees while newly-promoted Blackpool spent just £45,000.

Liverpool's spending rose from £6.6million to over £9million in a period when they were embroiled in the midst of takeover problems.
