Football League Transfer Talk: Including Campbell and Davies

Blackburn Rovers, Nottingham Forest, Huddersfield Town and Bristol City all feature.

Blackburn Rovers are on the verge of securing a loan deal for QPR striker DJ Campbell. Blackburn failed to sign Campbell permanently last month and the loan window has presented them with an opportunity to draft in the striker for the rest of the season.

Nottingham Forest look set to re-sign Billy Davies as the club’s manager. The Scot has turned down an approach to take over at Blackpool which means Forest are free to approach him and offer him a contract. However, his previous experiences at the club could put him off from going back.

Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle has said he will consider breaking the club’s budget to stay in the Championship. Huddersfield were promoted from League One last season and his comments suggest the club could be playing a very dangerous game in relation to their financial future.

Bristol City boss Sean O’Driscoll looks set to dip into the loan market for one or two emergency deals for the rest of the season. O’Driscoll only made one permanent signing last month which was a right back but he didn’t have the time to bring in the players he desired after following Derek McInnes.

League One leaders Tranmere Rovers will be thwarted in their attempts to re-sign Wolves striker Jake Cassidy on loan for the rest of the season. Wolves boss Dean Saunders insists the player can score goals at Championship level which suggest they are unlikely to let him leave again.

Brentford have managed to re-sign Everton left back Jake Bidwell on loan until the start of March. The League One side originally signed Bidwell back in August and have regularly extended the loan agreement which has kept him at the club for the majority of the season.

Jimmy Spencer has been sent back to parent club Huddersfield Town after failing to kick a ball for Crawley Town. Spencer signed on a one month loan deal but has returned to the Championship side to recover from a troubling knee injury which could keep him out for the rest of the season.
