Preston North End, 3-1 winners over Swansea City last weekend, are working hard to get a deal for at least on forward done before the 11pm deadline.

Frankie McAvoy is keen to bolster his attacking options and reportedly has offers out to more than on club but the clock is ticking and time is slipping away fast.

Elsewhere, Huddersfield Town and Coventry City are battling it out for the signature of Bradford’s Elliot Watt.

Barnsley could be set to get two more deals over the line before the window shuts while Hull City, working under difficult circumstances, could be bringng a familiar face back to the MKM Stadium for a second loan spell.

Meanwhile, Reading have agreed a deal with former Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann and Sheffiled United are expected to have a busy deadline day with the Blades expected to try and get another three deals over the line following last night’s signing of Conor Hourihane.

Also working to get deals done are Blackpool who could be set to splash the cash on a League 1 star.
