What should I be looking for in an agent?
Before signing with an agent, ask them who they represent, how long they have been in the business, why they are interested in signing you, do they have a relationship with clubs all over the world and what plans, long and short term do they have for you.
It is also important that you have an agent who is very honest and you can trust. Look for someone who will be in regular contact, not just someone who will contact you at contract time.

Choosing the right club for your development and ongoing success, promoting a players image and brand in the right manner and linking with the right business’s to associate you with. Having an agent to negotiate a deal is also beneficial as they will typically know the budget resources available at the club for new players.

Yes, clubs are forbidden and won’t deal with an unaccredited agent. To check if an agent is accredited it is best to check with the governing bodies player’s association.

Agents’ fees can vary though most agencies charge between 5-10% on playing contracts negotiated. Endorsement and sponsorship deals sourced by the agent will often command a 20% commission.
