It was another interesting weekend of results in the Championship, with some surprise early leaders in the race for promotion.
Reading lead the way at the top of the second-tier standings, whilst the likes of Nottingham Forest and Derby County are struggling early into this year’s campaign.
But clubs have still got plenty of time to get new faces through the door, as they look to strengthen their squads before the summer transfer window closes.
We take a look at the latest transfer rumours involving Championship clubs.
Nottingham Forest in talks with defender
Nottingham Forest had been in talks with Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna according to The Telegraph’s John Percy, with it now being claimed by Sky Sports News that a medical is under way over a deal for the 23-year-old.
McKenna has been a regular for the Scottish club over the years, and will link up with Sabri Lamouchi’s side before the summer transfer window reaches a conclusion.
Everton enter race to sign defender
Everton have entered the race to sign Brentford full-back Rico Henry according to The Mirror (print edition).
Henry was hugely impressive for the Bees last season as they narrowly missed out on promotion into the Premier League after a defeat to Fulham in the play-off final at Wembley.
Arsenal could make new bid for Brentford man
Arsenal could make a fresh approach for Brentford goalkeeper David Raya according to Goal.
The Gunners are looking for a replacement for Emiliano Martínez who left the club in favour of a move to Aston Villa, which means that they have targeted Raya as his potential replacement this season.
Birmingham City set to sign midfielder
The Blues are set to confirm the signing of former Athletic Bilbao midfielder Mikel San Jose according to Birmingham Live.

Millwall remain keen on signing familiar face

Ibe set for Derby County medical
Jordon Ibe is set to undergo a medical with Derby County ahead of a move to Phillip Cocu’s side according to the Daily Mail.
Ibe has been a free-agent since leaving AFC Bournemouth in the summer, and will be hoping he can make a similar impact to that of what he made in a loan spell with the Rams in the 2014/15 season.
Butland linked with swap deal
Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland has been linked with a move to Southampton according to StokeonTrentLive.

Reading set to beat Celtic and Rangers to sign midfielder
