With a full card of matches kicking off on Friday night as Birmingham City host Derby County, there’s still more than a few squads across the division who could do with a few more reinforcements.

For Sheffield United, it’s been more about the players who have exited Bramall Lane this summer while Preston North End are hot on the tail of a free agent striker.

Free agents can be signed by a club at any time during the season, if they had been released by their previous club before the end of the transfer window.

Clubs can still make moves in the loan markest with the rules stating a club can name a maximum of five loan players on a team sheet for any individual match. This will drop down to four players if one of the players named is an emergency loan goalkeeper. Loans can last for either a full season or half a season.

A couple of former Championship stars have got their careers back up and running on the continent while some former club favourites have been making their opinions know about Birmingham and Middlesbrough’s transfer business.
