Monday afternoon saw a majority of clubs welcome their players back for pre-season training, as preparations for the 2019/20 campaign get well and truly underway.
Managers have already started to reshape their squads with plenty of incomings and outgoings taking place, with just six weeks to go until the beginning of what is shaping up to be another enthralling campaign.
Here, we round up all the transfer rumours and deals that materialised on Monday…
Nottingham Forest completed their first signing of the summer on Monday, with former Bolton winger Sammy Ameobi arriving at the City Ground on a free transfer.
The 27-year-old scored four goals and produced three assists for Phil Parkinson’s side last season, but was unable to prevent the Trotters from falling into League One.
The towering winger will be looking to add more pace and power to the Forest attack next season.
Celtic and Stoke City have made enquiries for Luton Town star Jack Stacey ahead of a potential summer move, according to reports from The Sun.
The wing-back was named in the League One Team of the Season last season, after playing an influential role in the Hatters’ promotion to the Championship.
Potters boss Nathan Jones will know all about Stacey having signed him for Luton a couple of years ago, and he’d definitely add a lot of energy to the attack having scored four goals and produced eight assists last term.
Should a move for Stacey fail to materialise, then Celtic and Stoke are also believed to be interested in another right-back in Huddersfield’s Tommy Smith, as per reports from Football Insider.
The 27-year-old was a regular for the Terriers last term, and it is claimed that Nathan Jones is a big admirer of the experienced defender.
With only one year left on his current deal at the John Smith’s Stadium, a summer move to the bet365 Stadium or Celtic Park could potentially be in the offing.
QPR have been busy in the market so far in terms of turning down approaches for players.
The Hoops turned down a bid from Millwall for striker Matt Smith yesterday.
Mark Warburton has already made three signings this summer, as the former Brentford boss looks to make his squad his own this summer.
Mo Barrow could be on his way out of Reading this summer, with a host of French Ligue 1 clubs believed to be keeping tabs on the winger.
The 26-year-old still has two years left on his contract at the Madejski Stadium, but is set to depart the Berkshire club this summer despite making 37 appearances in all competitions last term.
