Transfer Deadline Day LIVE

New, comments

A weird live transfer blog, where no news is good news

Bolton Wanderers are under a transfer embargo so won't be buying any new players this Transfer Deadline Day. Therefore, the key interest from Wanderers fans' point of view will be not selling our young prospects and our better players.

The biggest news of transfer deadline day thus far has been those buggers over at Manchester City stealing the limelight by not even signing a player, but hiring some Spanish bloke as their manager for next season.

In terms of actual Bolton news, error-prone defender Prince has exited the club to move to Turkey - no doubt inspired by thrilling chats with Shola Ameobi - and fellow summer signing Francesco Pisano seems set to follow Prince and Jose Manuel Casado out of the club.

The transfer deadline 'slams' shut at 11pm GMT tonight, so at the time of writing we still have five and a half hours to go.

We'll bring you any updates on anything Wanderers related and - lets face it, more realistically - any other bits of transfer news from the world of football below.

Let us know your thoughts on anything related to Bolton, including going up against two ex-Wanderers strikers in Adam Le Fondre at Wolverhampton Wanderers tomorrow night, in the Comments section below.

11.00pm:

It's all over. And nothing has happened. But that's a good thing. And this has all been a waste of time.

However, I'm edging nearer to promotion with Sheffield United. Wahey.

10.57pm:

Ding-dong... Three minutes to go, and we haven't sold anyone yet

10.54pm:

No news. That's good news. Looks like nothing is going to happen, thankfully.

10.40pm:

BREAKING: No-one wants Radamel Falcao, for any money. How the mighty have fallen.

10.39pm:

Stoke have just blown £18.3m on a defensive midfielder, Gianelli Imbula. Sadly, Dan's tweet is all too true.

10.31pm:

Uh... Oh....

10.22pm:

I know it's technically past the watershed, but there's no need for this Charlton Athletic...

10.00pm:

One hour to go....

9.55pm:

Nothing else is happening. And that is a very good thing. Pray it stays that way.

9.26pm:

One of our relegation rivals has signed a player. Charlton have snapped up Yaya Sano-goal on loan from Arsenal, after he failed to impress on loan at Ajax. Because he's crap.

9.02pm:

Full-time in the Under-21s, it's finished 2-2. Tom Eaves and Jamie Thomas with the goals.

9.00pm:

You know what time it is. It's Jim White time.

8.58pm:

I'm on fake transfer mongering annoying Twitter accounts watch... Beginning with this monstrosity. Get a job mate! And learn to spell while you're at it.

8.56pm:

Jamie Thomas is back. He's the saviour of our club.

8.54pm:

Everton have blown £13.5m on some random nobody has ever heard of. Oumar Niasse. Who?

8.52pm:

Now then, now then. Everybody's favourite football dad (maybe), has Tweeted this cryptic clue. Make of this what you will...

8.49pm:

Jordan Rhodes to Middlesbrough is now a done deal... Wow. Love to know how Middlesbrough are passing FFP rules with the amount they're throwing around this season.

8.47pm:

News of one very random deal. Sunderland's Steven Fletcher is moving on loan to... Marseille. Righto!

8.31pm:

Oh hello... Here's some news about Bolton. Another of Neil Lennon's genius summer signings has departed the club, with Francesco Pisano going back to Italy on loan until the end of the season. Arrivederci Francesco.

8.28pm:

Watford have signed an 18-year-old Venezuelan 'wonderkid'... According to Sky Sports, who thought that Prince was a Bolton player.

This kid is apparently the youngest foreigner to have scored 2 goals in a single La Liga match.

8.25pm:

Uh-oh, the Under-21s are emulating the senior team. They're now losing 2-1. Oh, and they're actually playing Crewe, not Charlton.

8.22pm:

Big, big news....

Conor Sammon just scored a goal for me on Football Manager. His record of 5 goals in 26 games makes Gary Madine look like an actual goal machine.

8.08pm:

Apparently Leicester's Ritchie de Laet is also having a medical at Middlesbrough, along with Jordan Rhodes..

8.07pm:

Second half is under way in the Under 21s game.

8.15pm:

With Jordan Rhodes on the way out there were always going to be rumours linking Blackburn with forwards, and apparently they have been sniffing around super Zach Clough as well as being linked with young Josh Vela. But word has it Bolton have said that will not happen. And that had better be true!

As it stands... no further outgoings, yet.

8.02pm:

There's so little happening in transfer activity that I'm playing Football Manager, doing this and watching Sky Sports News. Who said men can't multi-task?

'Who are you managing?' I hear none of you ask. Well actually, Sheffield United and I just hit the top of League One. This is definitely more interesting than Transfer Deadline Day...

7.59pm:

It's all happening in the Under 21s match, some of the activity more adult than you might expect on a football field.

7.41pm:

Ah I put the mockers on it. Charlton have equalised...

7.40pm:

Away from the lack of transfer news, Bolton's Under 21s are playing tonight and they're winning 1-0 against Charlton Athletic. Tom Eaves with the goal from a Jamie Thomas cross after 11 minutes.

7.36pm:

Oh yeah, and Watford are spending £8m on a crap French midfielder.

7.35pm:

This is easily one of the dullest transfer deadline days, and not just at Bolton. Even in the Premier League there's not a lot happening.

The biggest news so far is probably Newcastle United snapping up a man most FIFA and Football Manager players will know well, Seydou Doumbia. The former CSKA Moscow and now Roma striker has joined on loan for the rest of the season.

That likely means the only other transfer story that seemed vaguely interesting, albeit now rather tedious - Saido Berahino - probably isn't going to happen.

7.25pm:

Another nugget of former Wanderers transfer news for you. Bolton youth product Michael O'Halloran has signed for disgraced club on the wrong side of Glasgow (Liam O'Meara told me to say that), Rangers.

7.20pm:

So with nothing happening at Bolton, there are deals happening elsewhere around the Championship.

Jordan Rhodes looks set to be joining Middlesbrough for a reported £13m. And Blackburn, not quite in his place, are signing Jordi Gomez from Sunderland.

Sheffield Wednesday have brought in Aidan McGeady on loan from Everton, while Tom Lawrence has moved to Cardiff City on loan from Leicester City, and James Tarkowski is swapping Championship clubs moving from Brentford to Burnley.

QPR are letting Leroy Fer move on loan to Premier League side Swansea City, and are bringing in Abdenasser El Khayati from manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's former club Burton Albion.

While Fulham are blitzing the loan market, bringing in Zakaria Labyad from Sporting Lisbon, Rohan Ince from Brighton, and Crystal Palace goalkeeper Alex McCarthy.

7.10pm:

I've just cycled home from work and... nothing has happened.

5.40pm:

Biggest Bolton-related transfer today? Nicky Hunt. He's joined his old mucker Kevin Nolan in east London by signing for Leyton Orient:
