Can you detail the progression of the British record transfer fee since Trevor Francis?

To celebrate Trevor Francis's 66th birthday, Sports Mole challenges you to detail the progression of the British record transfer fee since the famous £1m move.

Trevor Francis became Britain's first £1m player when he left Birmingham City to join Nottingham Forest in February 1979 for a figure believed to be in the region of £1.18m.

The former England international, who celebrates his 66th birthday today, also went on to represent the likes of Manchester City and Rangers before retiring at Sheffield Wednesday in 1994.

Francis scored the winning goal for Forest in the 1979 European Cup final against Malmo and also helped the English club pick up the trophy the following year.

The Englishman's name will forever be remembered when it comes to British transfers, but can you detail the progression of the British record transfer fee from February 1979 up until the present day?
