At his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday's home game against Swansea City, Neil said it was doubtful any further business would be done.

In the January window, Scott Sinclair has been North End's one signing, the winger joining from Celtic on a two-and-a-half year deal.

The one permanent outgoing was the cancellation of Chris Maxwell's contract by mutual consent, with the goalkeeper since joining Blackpool until the end of the season.

Josh Earl (Ipswich), Josh Ginnelly (Bristol Rovers), Jack Baxter (Clitheroe), Adam O'Reilly and Ethan Walker (both Stalybridge Celtic) have been loaned out in order to get game time.

The winter transfer window shuts at 11pm, with no more trading for EFL and Premier League clubs allowed until the summer.
