THEN TRY Quiz! Can you name the 40 biggest transfers involving Championship clubs?

In 1994, Jack Walker’s Blackburn Rovers announced their intentions as big-spenders when they smashed the British transfer record by signing Chris Sutton.

But this was 1994. It was a different time, when Britpop ruled the charts and the Irish were making World Cups that the English couldn't. Sutton only cost £5m.

We say "only", like all of us at FourFourTwo wouldn't love to find that kind of cash down the back of the sofa. But clubs these days are making a mockery of that fee; Rovers spent about that much on Sam Gallagher – and they're in the second division these days. 

Today, we're not just looking for the most expensive transfers of all time - we're looking for the record-breakers. The ones that broke the mould. The Chris Suttons of the world: it's not often you can group him in a category with some of these fellas...
