The summer transfer window is open and clubs across the EFL Championship have started shaping their squads for the new season.

The fixtures for the new Championship seasons will be released in ten days as clubs look to start recruiting new players in time for the start of pre-season training.

Burnley are being linked with a move for a Blackpool full-back who has been a stand out for their Lancashire rivals over the past two seasons while Preston North End are said to be considering a move for a released Fulham defender.

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough are keen to bring in a Leicester City midfielder on a season long loan and Reading are being linked with a released Aston Villa striker.

Birmingham City are reportedly aiming for a shock move to bring a former player back to St Andrews while Swansea City are being linked with a move for a Gillingham defender but could face competition.

Elsewhere, Huddersfield Town have been given permission to speak to a Manchester City starlet but the Terriers could face competition from Stoke City and Luton Town, among others, for the signing of a released Cardiff City midfielder.

Finally, Hull City are still keen to retain the services of their England Under 21 star despite fresh interest from an unnamed Premier League side this week.
