Deadline Day deals in the Football League

2 September 2015

The summer transfer window came to a close yesterday, with Football League clubs up and down the country strengthening their squads for the rest of the 2015/16 season.

Derby County boss Paul Clement was a busy man, making reinforcements after a winless start to the Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Clement boosted his midfield options with the signings of Bradley Johnson, who won promotion last term with Norwich City, and Huddersfield Town's Jacob Butterfield.

Preston North End added two men to their striking ranks, bringing in Stevie May from Sheffield Wednesday, and making the loan addition of Cardiff City’s Eoin Doyle.

Rotherham United were the most active side with three new players joining their squad - Tony Andreu and Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe arrived on loan from Norwich, and goalkeeper Lee Camp signed from Bournemouth on a free transfer.

Wolverhampton Wanderers moved for Swindon Town's versatile Nathan Byrne, who has impressed in an attacking role this season and could provide the perfect cover for the injured Nouha Dicko, while another highly-rated star from League 1 has also progressed to the Championship - Ryan Woods transferring from Shrewsbury Town to Brentford.

In Sky Bet League 1, the Shrews replaced Woods with the loan signing of Fulham's Larnell Cole, and Barnsley had a busy day bringing in three new faces.

The Tykes snapped up Harry White from non-league Gloucester City, while adding Nick Townsend and Michael Smith on loan from Birmingham City and Swindon respectively. Those two clubs combined to see Wes Thomas move from the Blues to the Robins on a temporary basis.

Sky Bet League 2 saw Jack Payne join Leyton Orient, adding more quality to an O's side who boast the only 100 per cent record in The Football League so far. Meanwhile, Cambridge United boosted their defensive options with the temporary arrival of Micky Demetriou from Shrewsbury Town.
