Football League Transfer Talk: Including Murray and Ledley

Cardiff City Stadium

Crystal Palace, Cardiff City, Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United all feature.

Ipswich Town have signed former Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Jason Brown until the end of the season. Ipswich had been looking fo0r a shot stopper to increase squad depth and Brown has signed a deal which will keep him at the club until their final Championship game.

Seyi Olofinjana has joined Sheffield Wednesday on loan until the end of the season. He’s made only 39 appearances for Hull city after picking up a knee injury shortly after signing for the club. The deal will expire after Sheffield Wednesday’s final game of the campaign.

Celtic winger Joe Ledley says former club Cardiff City have not been in touch over a return. Rumours had suggested that a loan deal was possible for the Welshman but he’s revealed he only sees his future at Celtic, which has thrown doubt over a possible move.

Leeds United have given a professional deal to striker Luke Parkin. The 18-year-old has been progressing steadily through the system at Leeds and has signed a two-year contract, his first professional deal, which should stop any side from poaching him in the summer.

Shrewsbury Town are close to landing a double loan deal for James Hurst of West Brom and Akwasi Asante of Birmingham City. Shrewsbury are looking to bolster their ranks and strengthen their current position using the loan window which expires today.

Millwall have completed the free transfer of defender Tom Bender. The 20-year-old has been without a contract since January, following his release by Colchester United. It was thought he may join a side on a loan deal from Colchester before they pulled the plug on his career.

Glenn Murray has signed a new three-year deal with Crystal Palace which commits him to the Championship club. There had been some speculation that Murray would be offered a role with a Premier League side in the summer, following his goalscoring exploits.
