Football League transfer talk: Including Carson and Campbell

Wigan Athletic, Blackburn Rovers, Watford and Ipswich Town all feature.

Wigan Athletic have completed the signing of goalkeeper Scott Carson from Bursaspor. The 27-year-old joins the Championship side on a three-year deal coming back into English football with a point to prove following inconsistent spells at Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion.

Blackburn Rovers have signed DJ Campbell on a two-year deal following his release from queens Park Rangers. Campbell spent the last part of last season on loan with the club, which seems to have made the deal straight forward following his release from QPR.

Watford could be about to secure the transfer of Marco Faraoni of Udinese. His agent has confirmed the possibility of a move to Watford is on the table due to the links between the clubs, which saw several Udinese players spend time on loan with Watford last season.

Nathan Redmond has completed his transfer to Norwich City from Birmingham City. The 19-year-old says the opportunity to work with Chris Hughton again is something he couldn’t turn down as he owes the manager a lot for his early development as a player.

Ipswich Town have taken goalkeeper Dean Gerken on trial. He’s a free agent following his exit from Bristol City at the start of the summer and he will be part of the side that goes to the Republic of Ireland as part of the pre-season schedule before the new season.

Yeovil Town are thought to be weighing up a move for experienced defender Marcos Painter. The 26-year-old is currently a free agent following a prolonged spell with Brighton and Hove Albion. Yeovil will have to move quickly as several clubs are thought to be interested.

Barnsley are thought to be keen on signing defender Kirk Broadfoot on a long term deal. He is available after Blackpool failed to tie him down to a new contract at Bloomfield Road, which has sparked a frenzy from clubs competing for his signature this summer.
