Ramage & Kightly deals fall through due to apparent lack of financial backing

Steve Bardens

As the clock winds down with just an hour to go at the time of writing, it is looking more and more likely that Bolton Wanderers fans will leave deadline day empty-handed and frustrated. Just an hour ago, news broke from the club that they were trying to get deals done for Crystal Palace fullback Peter Ramage and Stoke City winger Michael Kightly. Those two deals are now looking like they're off with the former officially moving elsewhere.

Crystal Palace have announced that they have loaned Ramage to Barnsley for the season. The club's release read as follows:

Eagles defender Peter Ramage has made a deadline day loan move to Championship side Barnsley until the end of the season.

The 29 year old has moved north after making 67 appearances for Palace since firstly arriving on loan from Queens Park Rangers in August 2011 and later signing permanently in the summer of 2012.

The Geordie centre-back, who began his career at Newcastle United in 2004, has been signed by Tykes boss David Flitcroft as he aims to strengthen his squad for the Championship campaign.

Marc Iles explained the reasoning on Twitter:
