Cardiff: The Bluebirds have announced that players will have to be sold to ease their current financial concerns and that no new players will be coming in. Good old Peter Risdale...

Coventry: The Sky Blues have signed midfielder and one-time 'Pool target Carl Baker from Stockport. Baker had scored 13 goals in 24 appearances this season for County.

Crystal Palace: The Eagles have gone into administration and have been deducted ten points. The administrators have banned Victor Moses from playing as they look to sell the club's most valuable player.

Middlesbrough: Lots going on at the Boro. Mohammed Shawky has joined Kayserispor on a free. Barry Robson, Willo Flood and Chris Killen have all joined from Celtic. Mark Yeates has surprisingly been sold to Sheffield United. There's probably more, but there's not enough hours in the day...

Plymouth: The strugglers have signed David Stockdale on loan from Fulham, whilst coach John Carver has signed a new contract with the club after turning down a move to Burnley.

Preston: The Nobbers have signed Danny Welbeck on loan from Man Utd until the end of the season. As much as it pains me to say it, that's a good bit of business by them.

Reading: The Royals have signed Zurab Khizanishvili on loan until the end of the season, whilst caretaker manager Brian McDermott has been given the manager's job permanently.

Scunthorpe: The Iron have signed Forest defender Brendon Maloney on loan until the end of the season.
