Goodnight everyone

And that is that.

Jordan Rhodes, if that was you texting in I'll come and find you now.

Though this tweet from BBC Radio Sheffield journalist Rob Staton suggests that all is not well.

Don't understand why Klopp hasn't given Sakho a chance, Liverpool's defence is terrible at the moment, he apologised, worked hard and still got forced out, should have given him a chance with Matip!

Tom (angry Liverpool fan)


Sakho done

Waheeeyy! Mamadou Sakho has signed for Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the season. 

Right. If there's no updates by 01:00 GMT we are closing this page down.

Hang tight. We are sending help. Try and count speed bumps or something. Anything you can hear would help.

Hull City

Any signing at this time of night is getting the big blue background from me.

Hull sign Polish winger Kamil Grosicki from Stade Rennais. 

It's a niche category for an award

Oh come on Hull! And you Crystal Palace. 

Get on with it. 

Hull are lining us up for one more...

Ross McCormack and Aston Villa - it just didn't work out did it?

McCormack only scored three goals for Villa after costing £12m and was disciplined last week for missing training on several occasions, including once when he told Steve Bruce that his gates were stuck and he couldn't climb over them in case he got injured...

McCormack in 'no fit shape to play'

Forest land McCormack

It's hard to keep up with strikers on the move in the Championship.

Nottingham Forest have now signed Ross McCormack on loan from Aston Villa.

They signed Zach Clough a few minutes ago.

Eight in one day! Wigan need a mini pre-season as they sign Jack Byrne from Manchester City.

The 20-year-old Irishman had been on loan at Blackburn.

Oldham have completed their third and final signing of deadline day in the form of Tope Obadeyi.

It comes after the 27-year-old left Scottish Championship side Dundee United earlier today.

Cough to Forest

Nottingham Forest have got Clough this week after all - but it's forward Zach Clough from Bolton.

The 21-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal at the City Ground. 

Nice threads man

Leo Fasan

This is Leo Fasan, a Celtic goalkeeper who has just joined Port Vale on loan and will fit in in Burslem just fine. 

Now that's leaving it late...

If you haven't heard the Grimsby fans' chant for Omar Bogle, to the tune of Blur's Tender, then you should remedy that. 

Done deal

Notts County have signed Hull City's 20-year-old defender Josh Clackstone on loan until the end of the season.

Done deal - Wigan sign Bogle

A late move through, and Wigan have had a busy day.

Their SEVENTH move of the day sees Grimsby striker Omar Bogle make the move to the Latics.

He has scored 19 goals in League Two this season.

He joins Gabriel Obertan, Matt Gilks, Mikael Mandron, Josh Laurent, Alex Bruce and James Weir.

Too much?

Manchester City have agreed a deal to sign Venezuela Under-20 international Yangel Herrera.

The deal was confirmed by Herrera’s club, Atletico Venezuela, this evening.

The club said Herrera would be available to City once he has finished competing at the current South American Under-20 Championships being held in Paraguay.

It was reported earlier that if the transfer went through, City would likely loan the 19-year-old central midfielder to sister club New York City.

Lincoln - I stand corrected

Ah I see. 

It doesn't look like Lincoln could do much about losing Theo Robinson.

The National League leaders extended their lead tonight anyway - winning at Solihull.

And here is that Rochdale signing.

Middlesbrough left-sided player Mark Kitching has joined on a permanent 18-month deal.

It has been reported that the League One club would receive 30% of the transfer fee for their former player Scott Hogan. Hogan has just joined Aston Villa for £12m.  

Wherefore art thou Mamadou?

Still no confirmation on whether Mamadou Sakho has joined Palace on loan. 

Out the door

A massive squad rebuilding job at Bristol City - they have now let Joel Ekstrand leave the club as a free agent.

Double deal!

A late double signing for Port Vale.

The League One club have signed goalkeeper Leonardo Fasan on loan from Celtic and Danny Pugh on a permanent transfer from Blackpool.

Both deals run until the end of the season.

The club sold goalkeeper Jak Alnwick to Rangers on Monday.

Hogan on the move

Scott Hogan has scored 14 goals this season for Brentford, and 21 league goals in 27 starts since moving from Rochdale for £750,000.

He has had two bad knee injuries but has been compared to Jamie Vardy after coming through the non-league circuit.

Tottenham are on a par with Chelsea in terms of their defence but I look at their bench and I don’t see enough game changers there. 

Chelsea can bring Pedro on Liverpool can bring Sturridge on and I look at Tottenham’s bench and I just wonder if they have enough.

Done deal

The wait is over Hartlepool fans!

The North East club have completed the loan signing of Louis Rooney for the rest of the season from Plymouth Argyle.

Burnley winger Michael Kightly has left Turf Moor to join up with Burton Albion.

Bad news for the Imps

A bizarre decision on the face of it. National League leaders Lincoln City, who are also in the FA Cup fifth round, have sold striker Theo Robinson back to one of his former clubs, Southend.

Southend are in League One but that decision, taken at 22:58 GMT, could surely cost the Imps dearly...

Still no official confirmation of Mamadou Sakho to Crystal Palace, Scott Hogan to Aston Villa or Zach Clough to Nottingham Forest.
