Here is today’s Championship transfer news.

Burnley are now unbeaten in six league matches after they played out a 1-1 draw against Preston North End last night.

Taylor Harwood-Bellis opened the scoring after only ten minutes before the hosts equalised shortly after - with neither team able to bag a winner, despite the Clarets’ 72 per cent possession.

The draw leaves Vincent Kompany’s team fifth in the Championship and six points from Sheffield United in first place.
