We’re moving into a warm weekend and yet the work never stops at clubs across League Two.
Some are adding to their squads, others are cutting back and one is resisting attempts to prise their player away.
We start at Field Mill where John Dempster is fighting to retain one of the Mansfield players.
Rose spent much of last season out of the limelight as Tyler Walker stole the headlines, but that hasn’t stopped interest in the striker.
Tranmere, Bradford City and Salford City are thought to be keen on him, but as the Mansfield Chad report, the owners have turned down a bid for him recently.
Dempster has spoken of his desire to keep Rose at Field Mill next season.
The Scunthorpe man is at the centre of a tussle over his contract situation, which has cost him a move to SPFL side Hibernian.
The former PSV Eindhoven youth had a relegation release clause in his contract, but he’s claiming to have activated it with the club denying that’s the case, as reported by the BBC.
Cardiff City have completed the signing of Joe Day, the Newport keeper who won plenty of admirers with his outstanding performances last season, as reported by their club site.
He was a key component of the Exiles side that got all the way to the play-off final, but he now leaves for the Championship and recently-relegated Cardiff City.
He left with manager Michael Flynn’s best wishes; “Joe has been a tremendous player for this football club on and off the pitch, his consistency and work ethic has got him this move. I would like to personally thank Joe for everything he has done here at Newport County AFC.”
Gary Warren & Jonny Maxted
Exeter City have ended their week on a high with a double swoop, as reported by the BBC.
They’ve secured former Accrington keeper Jonny Maxted as a replacement for Christy Pym, who signed for Peterborough earlier in the summer.
They’ve also bagged the services of defender Gary Warren, who leaves relegated Yeovil halfway through a two-year deal with the Glovers.
