Moves so far in the Championship

Moves so far in the Championship

Let`s not worry that there hasn`t been any new signings at Bloomers yet, plenty of time and its important to bring in players in who`ll add to the team, not just make up the numbers! A classic line from managers who have spent too much time in Spain rather than on the phone!

In the Championship there has been a bit of movement, the list below hopefully documents all the ins and outs from our new Championship buddies.

Stand out transfers in include, pacey Luke Varney from Crewe to Charlton, Matt Jackson and Mart Poom moving to Watford and Dutch Marciano Bruma moving to Barnsley, oh the cultural shock!

Goings out include, Sheffield United selling Colin Kazim-Richards to Fenebahce today, Gaz Bale moved from Southampton to Spurs and it looks like Spurs will splash the cash again on Darren Bent from Charlton.
