Transfer rumours

It's difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff at this time of year - and most of it is chaff. Some stories are started by agents trying to promote their player or are the result of speculative thinking by something on Twitter trying to create a wish list. In that category I place Anton Ferdinand signing for Charlton on loan.

That Chris Powell might have an interest in Norwich City's Simeon Jackson as a loan target makes sense, which doesn't mean that it is going to happen. More about him here: Jackson

I don't see Bradley Wright-Phillips going to MK Dons, even if his father is coaching there. I can see that Swindon might want to sign Danny Hollands, but not as an exchange for Matt Richie plus cash. In any case his loan there has just been extended for a second month.

Earlier reports of an interest by Birmingham City in Danny Green have now been followed up with suggestions that they would like to swop him for 34-year old Wade Elliott.

The safest prediction is that not that much is going to change in this window.
