Championship club-by-club transfer latest: August 14

Sports Mole brings you the latest transfer talk from all 24 clubs in the Championship.

The Football League season is now underway and although managers up and down the country will be analysing their performance over the weekend, they will still be looking to do business in the transfer market before the window shuts in less than three weeks.

Below, Sports Mole rounds up the activity of the 24 Championship clubs from the past seven days.

Birmingham City

One in, one out over the last week for Birmingham. As expected, Tom Adeyemi swapped St Andrew's for the Cardiff City Stadium. The Blues were able to slightly make up for his loss by capturing David Davis from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Blackburn Rovers

Nothing new for Rovers in the past week, but manager Gary Bowyer has said that he is hopeful of making more signings before the transfer window closes. One player the Lancashire club have been linked with is Cardiff City's Joe Ralls, who could be available on loan after spending last season with Yeovil Town in the Championship.

No fewer than six players have arrived at Bloomfield Road since our last update. Even with the plentiful arrivals, Blackpool were still only able to field four substitutes in the season opener at Nottingham Forest. Jose Riga has said, unsurprisingly, that he still wants several more new faces.

The latest Tangerines are Everton's John Lundstram on loan, striker Ishmael Miller, goalkeeper Elliot Parish, midfielders Andrea Orlandi and Joel Dielna and defender Jeffrey Rentmeister.

Bolton Wanderers

Although Dougie Freedman has said that more signings are on the way, the Trotters were only able to secure one new face since last week. It was an important one, though, as they finally secured the re-signing of Joe Mason on loan from Cardiff.

Keeper Jay Lynch has found a new home at Accrington Stanley after leaving Bolton earlier in the summer.


Eddie Howe appears content with his squad, who are top of the table after a convincing 4-0 win on the road at Huddersfield to start the season.


Two new, free signings this week and both should be good players in the Championship. Veteran forward Tommy Smith joins from Cardiff, while big German Nick Proschwitz swaps Hull for West London. Two other players reportedly interesting the Bees are Joe Ralls and Dom Dwyer.

There is also still interest in the club's star midfielder Adam Forshaw, and manager Mark Warburton has said that he will hold talks with the player.

Brighton & Hove Albion

Sami Hyypia continues to struggle in the transfer market and another of their best players has gone this week after Sunderland swooped to sign Will Buckley for around £2.5m. Seagulls fans will want to see that money invested sooner rather than later.

Brighton also missed out on Adam Clayton, who completed a move to Middlesbrough, and are still trying to secure a permanent deal for Wolves left-back Stephen Ward.

Cardiff City

One of the busier clubs over the past week were Cardiff. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced the outgoing Gary Medel with Tom Adeyemi, while Danny Johnson also came in and Norwich's Anthony Pilkington could soon be a Bluebird too. Solskjaer has insisted that there has been no bid for Ravel Morrison, though.

Joe Mason has re-joined Bolton on loan, while Filip Kiss has again moved North to Ross County, while Joe Ralls could also spend another season away on loan.

Charlton Athletic

Although there have been no new arrivals for the Addicks recently, the club are hopeful of completing a deal for striker Andy Delort. They are also another club believed to be eyeing a loan move for Cardiff's Joe Ralls.

One departure since our last update and a disappointing one for Charlton fans as Reza Ghoochannejhad moved to Kuwait on loan.

Derby County

One in, one out at the iPro Stadium. Real Madrid youngster Omar Mascarell has been brought in on loan, while teenage striker Mason Bennett is temporarily a Bradford City player.

Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg has moved to Monaco on loan, while Kostas Mitroglou should also soon be on his way out, with Olympiacos leading the race to sign the striker.

The Cottagers could be targeting Giancarlo Gonzalez, who impressed greatly with Costa Rica at the World Cup earlier this summer.

Huddersfield Town

The first manager to leave this season was Huddersfield's Mark Robins, who lasted just one game before "mutually" leaving the club. Before his exit, the club were able to add Conor Coady from Liverpool.

Coady will bolster the midfield along with Jacob Butterfield, who was part of a swap deal that saw Adam Clayton move in the other direction to Middlesbrough. Another new Terrier is 17-year-old Liam Coogans from Airdrie.

Ipswich Town

Little to report from Portman Road, where Mick McCarthy appears to be happy with his squad, which is predominantly the same as last season's.

Leeds United

There has now been lorry loads of new arrivals at Leeds this summer. After appearing to initially fail with a move for Chesterfield's Liam Cooper, the Whites came back and managed to secure centre-back Liam Cooper from Chesterfield. The Yorkshire side also bagged a new striker in Billy Sharp from Southampton. Another could soon be on the way if Leeds persuade nearby Rotherham to part with Kieran Agard.

Although Sharp has arrived, one player that won't be going in the other direction is Sam Byram after the Saints saw a bid for the young right-sider rejected. One other new arrival at Elland Road and another Italian in Giuseppe Bellusci.


Boro finally landed Adam Clayton from Huddersfield, parting with Jacob Butterfield as part of the deal. Aitor Karanka also managed to secure Kenneth Omeruo on loan again from Chelsea, and the Nigerian could be followed by two more Blues in Patrick Bamford and George Saville.

Another player to leave was young winger Ryan Brobbel, who has linked up with Hartlepool United on loan.


Further signings are unlikely at The Den, but one player did leave the club and it was former captain Paul Robinson, who joined Portsmouth on loan.

Norwich City

If Neil Adams can keep the players that he has at his disposal now by the end of the window, he will be a happy man. One player seemingly on the verge of leaving is Anthony Pilkington, with reports suggesting he could be having a medical shortly. Stoke City are also believed to be enquiring about Nathan Redmond.

There was good contract news for the Canaries as Wes Hoolahan and Declan Rudd committed to the club.

Nottingham Forest

Forest completed two big-money moves just days before the start of the season by adding winger Michail Antonio from Sheffield Wednesday and frontman Britt Assombalonga from Peterborough. The former has already scored in both games this season.

Stuart Pearce could also link up with a former England Under-21 player of his, Wilfried Zaha, who is likely to leave Manchester United on loan again. Leaving the club recently were Simon Gillett, Jamie Mackie, Simon Cox and Ishmael Miller.


The Royals are finally landing some players and since our last update have added Simon Cox, Jamie Mackie and Anton Ferdinand.

Rotherham United

Rotherham appear to have finally stopped their incomings, but might have to lose last season's top scorer Kieran Agard if Leeds make an offer that is too good to turn down.

Sheffield Wednesday

Although the Owls lost one of their top players in Michail Antonio to Forest, they were able to sign promising young forward Stevie May from St Johnstone.


It looks increasingly likely that Watford will keep Troy Deeney, with Hull City boss Steve Bruce ruling out a move for the striker. A player linked to the club is former AC Milan keeper Marco Amelia.

Alex Jakubiak, meanwhile, has left the Hornets to join Oxford United on loan.

Wigan Athletic

Despite Celtic's reported interest, Uwe Rosler insists that the Latics won't sell the winger. The Scottish club are also thought to be eyeing up goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi.

Three departures at Wigan this week, with Juan Carlos Garcia moving to CD Tenerife on loan, Jordan Mustoe joining Accrington Stanley and Marko Marosi heading to Doncaster Rovers.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves have lost four players since our last update - David Davis to Birmingham City, Anthony Forde to Walsall, George Elokobi to Oldham Athletic and Sam Whittall to Cambridge United.

According to manager Kenny Jackett, Chris Wood will not be joining from Leicester City, while Stephen Ward is still expected to leave for Brighton.
