With less than a fortnight until the big kick off, clubs are in the process of making the final improvements to their squads.
One League Two side have been busy this afternoon, securing the services of two different players. We begin our round-up with a loan signing for one of last year’s strugglers.
Macclesfield Town have added defender Eddie Clarke to thier ranks on a season-long loan from Fleetwood Town.
The 20-year-old has previously been on the books of Tranmere Rovers, but only turned out five times for Joey Barton’s side.
They’ve also swooped for Fraser Horsfall; a centre back previously on the books of Kidderminster Harriers.
Oldham are in talks with experienced centre back David Wheater, as reported by the Sun’s Alan Nixon.
The 32-year-old was captain of Championship Bolton last season, but now looks set to leave amidst their financial issues.
Wheater has previously played for England up to Under 21 level, whilst on the books of Middlesbrough.
Aston Villa midfielder Lewis Brunt will have one more game with Carlisle United before a collective decision is made on his future, as reported by the News and Star.
Brunt is on trial with the Cumbrians at the moment, but Steven Pressley confirmed he’ll have another look at him before making a decision on a loan deal.
“He’s a really good character, he’s gelled into the group very well, and he’s a vocal lad which I like,” said the former Coventry boss.
“We’ll certainly be looking at him over the coming weeks.”
Oldham have picked up 18-year-old Marvin Kokos on a two-year deal following a trial with the club.
He’s a former Marseille youth product who joins from French side Gazélec Ajaccio, with an option of a third year upon completion of the first two.
The Latics finished 14th in League Two last season and are now bossed by former Monaco manager Laurent Banide.
