Dele Alli - Milton Keynes Dons to Tottenham Hotspur

MK Dons' Dele Alli - The Football League’s Young Player of the Month for August - secured a deadline day move to Tottenham Hotspur, but he will spend the rest of the season on loan at stadiummk, where he has developed into a goalscoring midfielder.

Eoin Doyle - Chesterfield to Cardiff City

Eoin Doyle is The Football League’s top goalscorer so far this term with 25 goals to his name, and those exploits saw him sign for Cardiff City on deadline day. Can he fire the Bluebirds up the Sky Bet Championship table?

Matt Done - Rochdale to Sheffield United

Matt Done was a mobile left-back prior to this season but Rochdale boss Keith Hill converted him into a lively striker, and it paid dividends with Done scoring 14 goals prior to a deadline day switch to Sheffield United. The Blades will now benefit from Done leading their line.
