Football League Transfer Talk: Including Upson and Stones

Amex Stadium Brighton

Wolves, Charlton, Leicester and Brighton all feature.

Liverpool have confirmed that left back Jack Robinson will spend the rest of the season on loan at Wolves. News broke yesterday that Wolves were trying to sign the defender but nothing came out of Anfield until late on. Robinson is already a full England Under-21 international.

Paolo Di Canio is being linked with the manager’s job at Charlton Athletic. Current boss Chris Powell is under a lot of pressure after a poor run of form has seen Charlton slide into the bottom half of the Championship table, seemingly ending their hopes of a play-off place.

Barnsley manager David Flitcroft has reportedly admitted it’s possible John Stones could return to the club on loan. Stones joined Everton in a permanent deal last month and the Toffees could decide to loan him back to the Championship side if they can’t offer him regular first team games this season.

Leicester City are set to send defender Liam Moore to league one side Brentford. The Bees are keen to sign Moore because of his versatility which means he can play either as a right back or centre back. It’s unclear whether he’ll sign on a short term deal or until the end of the season.

Southend United midfielder Kevan Hurst could be in line for a move to Bolton Wanderers this summer. Bolton seem to be working on a deal which will see them sign the player when the summer window opens. Hurst can play anywhere in the midfield or just behind a main striker.

On loan Brighton defender Matt Upson could agree a permanent deal with the Championship side. The former West Ham centre back has reportedly been told by Tony Pulis at Stoke, that he is free to try and work out a permanent deal with Brighton when the loan agreement expires.

Albert Adomah is reportedly on the verge of agreeing a one-year contract extension with Bristol City. The winger had been linked with a move to Crystal Palace but reports are suggesting that he will commit to his current club whether they stay in the Championship or are relegated to League One.
