Ex-Hull chairman Duffen defends transfer spending

Former Hull City chairman Paul Duffen has defended his transfer spending.

Duffen has insisted the club's £30million wage bill is manageable and that payments to agents were not excessive.

He told the Daily Express: "That is in the bottom quarter of the Premier League's wage table - and it would have been less if we had moved on more of the players we wanted to in the summer.

"Over my tenure through three summer transfer windows, the amount paid to agents would be less than £3million, not the £5.5million mentioned in some quarters. And that was on more than 30 transactions."
