The fallout from the January transfer window continues while EFL clubs are also making early preparations for the summer.

A Sheffield United star is likely to remain at Bramall Lane due to an option in his contract, which is due to expire this year, that will see it extended after a certain amount of appearances this season.

A former Middlesbrough manager says a current Boro player is “a class above” other players in his position at Tottenham Hotspur, a club who are rumoured to be interested in signing him.

Meanwhile, a former Preston North End boss is expected to be named the new manager of Sunderland today and Huddersfield Town’s boss could be on the radar of a Premier League club if their current boss leave at the end of this season.

Manchester United are said to be ‘leading the race’ ahead of Chelsea, Tottenham and Everton to sign a Blackburn Rovers teenager while Bournemouth boss Scott Parker has discussed why the club signed another defender on-loan from Liverpool last month.

In Scotland, Aberdeen’s manager has said that ‘good players are in demand’ as they compete to sign an ex-West Brom and Hull City star who is now a free agent while a former Fulham midfielder has compared making his Dundee United debut last night to winning promotion with the Cottagers.
