Championship Round-Up

Championship Round-Up

Bristol City: Goalkeeper Dean Gerken was arrested last month for indecent exposure after allegedly being spotted urinating. He was released without charge, but given a fixed penalty for threatening behaviour and language.

Cardiff: Michael Chopra will be suspended for Saturday's Welsh derby against Swansea after picking up a yellow card in the closing stages of The Bluebirds' 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest at the weekend. Meanwhile, fellow striker Ross McCormack has been charged with drink-driving.

Leicester: The Foxes have announced that Edgar Davids will not be joining the club. The veteran Dutch international had been in talks with the club over the past few weeks, but was unable to agree terms.

Middlesbrough: Gordon Strachan's first game in charge of the Boro didn't go to plan as his new side lost to lowly Plymouth, Jamie Mackie scoring the only goal to ease some of the pressure on Paul Sturrock et al. Strachan has moved quickly to sign Marcus Bent on loan from Birmingham. The veteran journeyman striker has joined on a two month emergency loan. The Boro are also in talks with Stoke's Andy Griffin about a loan move. The veteran would provide cover for the injured Emanuel Pogatetz. The Austrian fractured a cheekbone in Saturday's defeat and will be out for six weeks.

Newcastle: The Toon have confirmed Chris Hughton as manager after Mike Ashley took the club off the market. Hughton has signed a deal until the end of next season.

Reading: Striker Noel Hunt may miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on a knee injury last week.

Scunthorpe: 'Pool's opposition on Saturday have signed Wolves full back George Friend on a month's loan.

Sheffield United: The Blades have strengthened their side with the signing of Senegal striker Henri Camara until the end of the season. However, Paddy Kenny's appeal against his ban for drugs use has been thrown out by the FA.

Sheffield Wednesday: The Owls have placed defender Richard Wood on the transfer list. The 24 year old's deal runs out this summer and he has rejected several offers for a new deal. Midfielder Jermaine Johnson has agreed a new deal, however. Meanwhile, £22 million plans to revamp Hillsborough have been approved. The work will increase the capacity to 45,000 amongst other improvements.
