Championship club-by-club transfer latest: August 19

Sports Mole brings you the latest transfer news for all 24 clubs in the Championship.

There's now less than two weeks until the transfer window closes and managers in the Championship will know what areas they want to strengthen now that the season is up and running.

Below, Sports Mole rounds up the activity of all 24 clubs in the second tier.

Birmingham City

The Blues have recalled Amari'i Bell from his loan at Mansfield and brought in teenager Luke Armstrong after he impressed on trial.

Rob Hall is thought to be a target, could also re-join the club as he is struggling to get into Bolton Wanderers' league side.

Blackburn Rovers

Even though Gary Bowyer has said that he is keen to add further to his squad before the transfer window closes, there has been little activity at Ewood Park.

The busiest Championship club this window have been rebuilding Blackpool, who, since our last update, have signed three more players.

Former Newcastle United man Nile Ranger and Francois Zoko bolster the attack, while Edu Oriol joins twin brother Joan at Bloomfield Road.

Bolton Wanderers

Dougie Freedman is yet to give Rob Hall a minute of action in the Championship and Birmingham are said to be keen on re-signing the player who had a spell on loan at St Andrew's in the 2012-13 season.

Bournemouth

The Cherries, who sit top of the table and haven't signed a player this month, received a boost when impressive right-back Simon Francis signed a new three-year contract.

Manager Eddie Howe has also said that he is keen to bring more players to the South Coast, but won't rush into the market.

Brentford

Two new signings for the Bees of late, with Jon Toral arriving on a season-long loan from Arsenal and Jose Peleteiro Ramallo signing a three-year contract after a fee was agreed with Sevilla.

Manager Mark Warburton has also said that he wants to sign a defender before the window closes.

Brighton & Hove Albion

A trio of new faces arrived at The Amex, with Dutch midfielder Danny Holla signing a three-year contract and Portuguese Under-21 international Joao Carlos Teixeira joining on loan from Liverpool.

Former Barnsley man Paddy McCourt has also signed on after impressing on trial on the South Coast.

Cardiff City

Two in, one out in the Welsh capital. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought in Sean Morrison from Reading and Anthony Pilkington from Norwich City, while letting Kevin Theophile-Catherine join Saint-Etienne on loan in France.

Charlton Athletic

The Addicks are yet to engage in any deals this month and despite being linked with several players of late, manager Bob Peeters has insisted that he will only go after the right players in the final two weeks of the window.

Derby County

Plenty to report on from the iPro Stadium. The Rams reportedly expressed an interest in Stoke City's Ryan Shotton, but that move now seems unlikely to go through. German starlet Tom Koblenz is also believed to be a target.

Leaving the club are Conor Sammon and Mark O'Brien, who have been loaned out to Ipswich Town and Motherwell respectively.

Fulham

Although Fulham have lost both of their league games at the start of the season, one player has impressed in particular and Liverpool are thought to be keen on 17-year-old Patrick Roberts after his displays.

Bryan Ruiz should be leaving this month and Werder Bremen might be his new club. The Cottagers also added a new face on Friday, signing former Bolton Wanderers player Dino Fazlic on a one-year contract.

Huddersfield Town

After losing Adam Clayton to Boro, Huddersfield could be losing another midfielder. Reading have reportedly come in for Oliver Norwood and agreed a fee with the Terriers.

The Terriers are yet to appoint a new manager following the departure of Mark Robins and it could be a big name taking over after Patrick Kluivert declared his interest in the post.

Ipswich Town

Mick McCarthy has reshuffled his attack over the past few days. Conor Sammon has joined the club on loan, while Frank Nouble is available for transfer. Paul Taylor and Jack Marriott have gone out on loan to Rotherham United and Carlisle United respectively.

Jack Collison is also training with the club and could sign a contract if he proves his fitness to McCarthy.

Leeds United

Despite reportedly being close to a deal, the move for Rotherham's Kieran Agard has fallen through and he looks set to stay with the Millers now. The Whites have now turned their attention to young Brazilian Adryan.

In other news, Paddy Kenny has left the club by mutual consent and Matt Smith has signed a new contract.

Middlesbrough

Boro should soon wrap up a loan move for Chelsea's Patrick Bamford, unless the player opts against a move to the North-East. One confirmed signing of late and Damia Abella went straight into the Boro side on Saturday.

There was also one departure from the Riverside, with Richard Smallwood returning to Rotherham on loan.

Millwall

Ian Holloway has already said that further moves are unlikely, but Stephen Bywater has left to join Gillingham on loan until January.

Norwich City

Leroy Fer is now all but a Queens Park Rangers player and Norwich have been linked with Celtic's Kris Commons to replace him. One confirmed departure - Anthony Pilkington has gone to Cardiff.

Two players more likely to join the Canaries in the coming days are Carlos Cuellar and Cameron Jerome.

Nottingham Forest

It looks like Stuart Pearce will be bringing in more players before the end of the window, with Jack Hobbs and Nick Powell linked with moves recently.

Robert Tesche has joined on a one-year contract and the club have also offered Henri Lansbury a new contract.

As mentioned above, the Royals have reportedly expressed an interest in Forest defender Jack Hobbs, who would replace Sean Morrison after his move to Cardiff.

Nigel Adkins is also believed to be lining up a move for Huddersfield midfielder Oliver Norwood.

Rotherham United

It initially appeared that Rotherham had put a halt to their summer spree, but now two players have come in on loan over the past few days.

Paul Taylor came in from Ipswich and almost scored a brilliant opener on his debut on Saturday, while Richard Smallwood is in the squad tonight after re-joining from Middlesbrough.

Sheffield Wednesday

After an impressive start to the season, Stuart Gray seems content with his squad at Hillsborough.

Watford

Although there is still believed to be interest in striker Troy Deeney, Leicester City might have now been priced out of a move.

Wigan Athletic

Even though their start to the season has been far from perfect, Wigan don't appear to be in the market for any new players. If they are to make a move, then young Swede Emil Bergstrom might be their next new face.

There could be a Latic on the way out, with Burnley reportedly keeping tabs on James McArthur.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

After being linked with Brighton for much of the window, Stephen Ward has now left Wolves for Burnley in the Premier League.
