A transfer row is brewing in the Championship, with Leeds United and Nottingham Forest at the centre of things and their rivals urging the governing bodies to deny them the chance to sign players.
Leeds currently sit top of the Championship table, whilst Nottingham Forest are amongst the chasing-pack behind them in the play-off places.
As we know, the football season is on hold and when the EFL can resume is anyone’s guess at this stage.
On the back of that, Leeds and Nottingham Forest are amongst a host of clubs that have agreed to defer players’ wages until more clarity is given.
However, at some clubs like Preston North End across the Championship that’s not been the case, with the Telegraph detailing how they believe the likes of Leeds and Forest shouldn’t be allowed to make signings when the transfer window eventually opens.
The report goes on to say that this is now a ‘live issue’, with rivals of Leeds and Forest pushing for action to be taken against them.
The other clubs named that have agreed wage deferrals are Brentford, Bristol City, Millwall, Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers.

This is going to be another problem that’s facing the EFL when things eventually get back to normal.
Preston have taken a different stance on deferring players’ wages in comparison to other clubs, but there is no right or wrong decision to be made.
However, they feel that Leeds, Nottingham Forest and many more should be punished with no transfer window, which would be some blow.
The eventual decision will not please everyone, that’s for sure.
