Blackpool are among the lowest spenders on agents fees in League One

The Seasiders paid just £33,400 during that time, with only Bury, Gillingham and Oldham Athletic spending less.

It will come as no huge surprise given Blackpool made no signings during the January transfer window, other than loan captures.

They did, however, spend fees on Peter Hartley, Nick Anderton and Scott Quigley during the summer.

The figures, released by the FA today, show Fleetwood Town paid £135,372 - ranking them ninth highest in League One.

The Cod Army signed Paddy Madden from Scunthorpe United in January for what was described as a six-figure sum.

Fleetwood have also spent fees on the likes of Kyle Dempsey and Harrison Biggins during this time period.

The biggest spenders were Blackburn Rovers (£764,024), Wigan Athletic (£557,333) and Charlton Athletic (£425,466).
