NEW signings, possible departures and growing rumours - it’s transfer deadline day and Leeds United, Barnsley and Huddersfield Town are in the thick of the action.
The Whites have already secured the loan signing of young Tottenham Hotspur defender Adam Smith today until the end of the season.
The right-back was on-loan with League One side MK Dons but Spurs recalled Smith yesterday to give him the chance to play at a higher level at Elland Road.
The move is with a view to a permanent deal should it suit all parties come the end of the campaign.
Simon Grayson, the Leeds boss, continues to be linked with a move for Coventry City midfielder Sammy Clingan but United could face competition for the Sky Blues’ skipper with Middlesbrough also reported to be interested.
Leeds are also understood to be keen on extending the loan deal of former player Fabien Delph until the end of the season.
The midfielder penned an initial one-month loan from Aston Villa but Grayson is reported to be keen on extending that for the rest of the campaign.
Former Leeds striker Andy Keogh has secured a permanent move to Millwall for an undisclosed fee from Wolverhampton Wanderers,
Ricardo Vaz Te could be on his way out of Barnsley with West Ham United close to securing the Portuguese striker’s services.
Reds boss Keith Hill confirmed at yesterday’s press conference at Oakwell that the club had already turned down a “derisory” offer from the Hammers.
Reports are now pointing towards an improved bid, however, and the former Bolton Wanderers man could be reuinted with former manager Sam Allardyce at Upton Park.
Vaz Te is out of contract in the summer and the Championship club would risk losing him for nothing at the end of the season.
The Reds captured Exeter City full-back Scott Golbourne yesterday and his arrival adds to last week’s additions of Michael Tonge and Korey Smith.
Hill could well add another new player before the close of play today - the transfer window for permanent deals shuts at 11pm - after the Tykes boss suggested he’s looking at two more additions at the weekend.
Leyton Orient midfielder Stephen Dawson is the man being linked and reports are suggesting the Reds are closing in on a deal.
Hill yesterday revealed a bid had been knocked back by Orient but the Tykes are understood to have returned with an improved bid.
At the Galpharm Stadium the close of the window can’t come soon enough for Huddersfield Town.
Talk has been relatively quiet over the future of star striker Jordan Rhodes, with the Terriers insisting he’ll still be at Huddersfield come the end of the month.
West Ham are understood to have had two bids rejected for the Scottish international earlier in the month. But Aston Villa, whose striker Darren Bent is being linked with a move to Liverpool, and Norwich City have both been linked with him today.
Town striker Robbie Simpson has departed, however, with the 26-year-old signing a permanent deal with Oldham Athletic after completing a three-month loan in Lancashire.
Coming in his highly-rated Falkirk defender Murray Wallace, according to reports.
The 19-year-old was also being tracked by Ipswich Town but Town seem to have won the race for his signature.
The club has yet to confirm the deal but Wallace could be loaned straight back to the SPL club until the end of the season to continue his development.
