There is plenty of transfer action for us to get our teeth into on this evening’s round-up.
One of the promotion hopefuls have secured a player on a new deal and a Premier League youngster is poised to make a switch to League One, but we’ll start with the return of a club legend at London Road.
Peterborough United have secured what they’ve described on their website as a ‘huge coup’ by bringing George Boyd back to the club.
Boyd spent six years with Posh from 2007, winning promotion in successive seasons before embarking on a Premier League career.
He joins on a two-year deal with manager Darren Ferguson claiming the length of the deal is because he will be able to do a job in the Championship for them ‘if they get there’.
John Coleman’s side are never ones to be at the forefront of the transfer news, but they’ve added two new faces on a busy afternoon of business.
Joe Maguire joins the club after being released by Fleetwood. He’s a full back who began his career with Liverpool.
They’ve also added Leicester City’s Lamine Kaba Sherif to their ranks, a player Coleman claims has turned down moves aboard in favour of proving himself in England with Stanley.
Football Insider claims that Tranmere Rovers are close to a loan deal for Aston Villa’s Rushian Hepburn-Murphy.
The 20-year-old has a handful of senior appearances to his name for Villa, but spent the latter part of last season on loan with Cambridge in League Two.
He bagged twice in 11 outings for the U’s and now looks set to try his luck in League One with Mickey Mellon’s promoted side.
Sunderland have made a major signing this morning but it’s not a new face as fans might expect.
“At the end of last season, I spoke to the manager because I only really saw my future here,” he said.
“I spoke to the manager before we knew where we were going to be, whether it was in the Championship or League One.”
