Ins and Outs - Summer deals in Yorkshire ...
STICKING AROUND: Barnsley's Mike-Steven Bahre. Picture: Bruce Rollinson.
DONE DEALS - IN: Mike-Steven Bahre (Hannover 96, undisclosed), Luke Thomas (Derby County, undisclosed), Bradley Collins (Chelsea), Mads Juel Andersen (FC Horsens, undisclosed), Samuel Radlinger (Hannover 96, free), Toby Sibbick (AFC Wimbledon, undisclosed), Aapo Halme (Leeds United, undisclosed), Bambo Diaby (Lokeren, undisclosed), Mallik Wilks (Leeds United, £1m), Conor Chaplin (Coventry City, undisclosed).
OUT: Ethan Pinnock (Brentford, £3m), Liam Lindsay (Stoke City, £2m rising to £2.5m), Adam Davies (Stoke City, freedom of contract), Lloyd Isgrove (Swindon, free), Zeki Fryers (Swindon Town, free), Adam Jackson (Hibernian, free), Ryan Hedges (Aberdeen, free), Victor Adeboyejo (Bristol Rovers, loan), Kieffer Moore (Wigan Athletic, rising to £4m).
PRIORITIES: Having brought in ten players in a frenetic summer window which has seen big-hitters Ethan Pinnock, Liam Lindsay, Adam Davies and Kieffer Moore depart, the Reds still have work in their in-tray ahead of the deadline.
A frontline forward to replace Moore is essential, with the club in the bidding for highly-rated Legia Warsaw striker Sandro Kulenovic. They also have several other active forward targets, including Middlesbrough's Marcus Tavernier.
The Reds are also aiming to complete a deal to sign Leeds United left-back Tom Pearce to add to their left-back options.
A plethora of new defensive options have already arrived in the shape of Toby Sibbick, Aapo Halme, Bambo Diaby and Mads Juel Andersen, alongside exciting attacking talent in Mallik Wilks, Luke Thomas and Conor Chaplin.
The goalkeeping department has also been addressed with the addition of former Chelsea keeper Brad Collins and Austria-born Samuel Radlinger.

Bantams boss Gary Bowyer
DONE DEALS - IN: Tyler French (AFC Sudbury, free), Ben Richards-Everton (Accrington Stanley, free), Paudie O'Connor (Leeds United, free), Sam Hornby (Port Vale, free), Zeli Ismail (Walsall, free), Jackson Longridge (Dunfermline Athletic), Adam Henley (Real Salt Lake, free), Clayton Donaldson (Bolton Wanderers, free), Paudie O'Connor (Leeds United, undisclosed), James Vaughan (Wigan Athletic), Matty Palmer (Rotherham United, loan).
OUT: Josh Wright (Leyton Orient, free), Adam Chicksen, Billy Clarke, Alex Jones, Cameron Hawkes, Callum Gunner, Tom Clare, Paul Caddis (released), Calum Woods (Tranmere, free), Ben Wilson (Coventry City, free), Jack Payne, David Ball, George Miller, Paudie O'Connor, Jacob Butterfield, Lewis O'Brien (loan return), Ryan McGowan (Sydney FC, free), Nathaniel Knight-Percival (Carlisle United, free), Kielen Adams (Oldham, free).
PRIORITIES: No Yorkshire club were busier in the first half of the summer than City, with 11 new players coming into the building, including marquee recruits James Vaughan and Zeli Ismail.
Gary Bowyer is effectively building a new side after the disastrous Edin Rahic-inspired recruitment of last summer and his work is not finished yet, with the club boosted by a cash windfall after being the beneficiaries of a sell-on clause following Oli McBurnie's £17.5m sale from Swansea to Sheffield United.
Major inroads have been made defensively - headlined by the arrivals of Paudie O'Connor and Ben Richards-Everton - and up front and on the flanks.
Reece James: Brought in from Sunderland for an undisclosed fee. Picture: Getty Images.
DONE DEALS - IN: Brad Halliday (Cambridge United, free), Reece James (Sunderland, undisclosed), Magner Gomes (free agent), Ben Sheaf (Arsenal, six-month loan), Seny Dieng (QPR, loan), Alex Baptiste (QPR, free), Niall Ennis (Wolves, loan), Cameron John (Wolves, loan).
OUT: John Marquis (Portsmouth, rising to £2m), Danny Andrew (Fleetwood, free), Andy Butler (Scunthorpe United, free), Tommy Rowe (Bristol City, free), Marko Marosi (Coventry City, free), Alfie Beestin, Tyler Garratt, Luke McCullough, Liam Mandeville (released), Mallik Wilks, Herbie Kane, Paul Downing, Aaron Lewis, Tyler Smith (loan returns).
PRIORITIES: Firmly in rebuild mode, Rovers look a wholly different squad in terms of personnel to the one who were so unfortunate to lose out on penalties in the League One play-off semi-finals at Charlton.
A host of major players have moved on, with the departure of John Marquis to Portsmouth likely to be the most keenly felt, with Rovers needing to fill a cavernous gap up front following his exit.
A senior defensive option has arrived in Alex Baptiste, which should mitigate for the loss of Andy Butler, with Reece James effectively a like-for-like replacement for Danny Andrew.
Ben Sheaf's arrival should plug a gap in midfield following the loan return of Herbie Kane and Tommy Rowe's switch to Bristol City.
Rovers will be anxious to repel significant interest from Hull City for captain Ben Whiteman by the time that the doors close for summer business for Championship clubs.
BIG SUMMER: Huddersfield Town manager, Jan Siewert. Picture: PA.
DONE DEALS - IN: Tommy Elphick (Aston Villa, free), Reece Brown (Forest Green, undisclosed), Josh Koroma (Leyton Orient, undisclosed), Herbert Bockhorn (Borussia Dortmund II, undisclosed), Isaac Mbenza (Montpellier, undisclosed), Kamil Grabara (Liverpool, season-long loan).
OUT: Chris Lowe (Dynamo Dresden, undisclosed), Jonas Lossl (Everton), Jason Puncheon (loan return), Danny Williams, Laurent Depoitre (released), Jack Payne (Lincoln City, free), Erik Durm (Eintracht Frankfurt), Ramadan Sobhi (Al-Alhy, season-long loan). Tommy Smith (Stoke City, undisclosed), Philip Billing (Bournemouth, £15m).
PRIORITIES: The first half of the summer was preoccupied by Town clearing the decks of players wishing to move and not overly keen on dipping their toes in the Championship after two seasons in the Premier League, with early exits seeing Chris Lowe and Jonas Lossl move on.
The headline high-summer departee is Philip Billing, who has joined Bournemouth for £15m, while Tommy Smith has signed for Stoke City.
In terms of incomings, Town's work has been relatively sedate so far, although business has been sanctioned with former Aston Villa defender Tommy Elphick heading to the John Smith's Stadium, alongside Forest Green midfielder Reece Brown, Leyton Orient forward Josh Koroma, German defender Herbert Bockhorn and loan keeper Kamil Grabara.
KEY COMPONENT: Will this be the summer when Hull City cash in on star asset Jarrod Bowen?
DONE DEALS - IN: Matt Ingram (QPR, undisclosed), Tom Eaves (free agent), Josh Bowler (Everton, season-long loan), Ryan Tafazolli (free), Sean McLoughlin (Cork City, undisclosed), George Honeyman (Sunderland, undisclosed).
OUT: Evandro, Will Keane, Ondřej Mazuch, Callum Burton, Adam Curry (released), Liam Ridgewell (Southend, free), James Weir (Bolton, free), Todd Kane, Chris Martin (loan return), David Marshall (Wigan Athletic, free), Sean McLoughlin (St Mirren, loan), Max Sheaf (Cheltenham, loan).
PRIORITIES: As ever, the closure of the summer window has the potential for drama in East Yorkshire.
With Markus Henriksen expected to head for pastures new, the Tigers are keen on bringing in Doncaster Rovers' midfielder Ben Whiteman as a replacement, but Rovers are likely to prove resistant.
So far, the 'family silver' in the shape of star wingers Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki remain at the club and while there is confidence that they will remain at the club, nothing can be taken as read at a club where significant late summer outgoings have been commonplace in recent times.
On the incoming front, QPR keeper Sam Ingram will provide competition for George Long, with forward Tom Eaves, winger Josh Bowler, free agent defender Ryan Tafazolli and Sunderland midfielder George Honeyman providing fresh options.
WILL HE STAY OR WILL HE GO? Midfielder Kalvin Phillips is likely to attract a lot of interest
DONE DEALS - IN: Jack Harrison (Manchester City, season-long loan), Ben White (Brighton, season-long loan), Liam McCarron (Carlisle United, undisclosed), Jack Clarke (Tottenham Hotspur, season-long loan), Helder Costa (Wolves, season-long loan leading to permanent move), Ilan Meslier (FC Lorient).
OUT: Izzy Brown, Jack Harrison (loan return), Paudie O'Connor (Bradford City, free), Jay-Roy Grot (Vitesse Arnhem, loan), Jack Clarke (initial £9m, Tottenham), Pontus Jansson (Brentford, £5.5m), Liam Kitching (Forest Green, undisclosed), Aapo Halme (Barnsley, undisclosed), Mallik Wilks (Barnsley, undisclosed), Lewie Coyle (Fleetwood, loan), Tyler Denton (Stevenage, undisclosed), Samuel Saiz (Girona, undisclosed), Kemar Roofe (Anderlecht, £7m), Yosuke Ideguchi (Gamba Osaka, undisclosed), Bailey Peacock-Farrell (Burnley, £2.5m), Oliver Sarkic (Burton, loan).
PRIORITIES: Having lost two of last season's frontliners in Pontus Jansson and Kemar Roofe, Leeds are digging their heels in following stiff interest in Kalvin Phillips and should he remain at the club by the time that the summer window closes, the Whites nation will breathe an almighty sigh of relief.
Supporters will sleep even more soundly if the club compensates for the loss of Roofe with a key forward addition or two.
United are in the race to sign talented Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah, also a target for Bristol City and Fortuna Dusseldorf, with Liverpool's Ryan Kent being another option.
Goalkeeping cover is also required after Bailey Peacock-Farrell's move to Burnley.
With chairman Andrea Radrizzani having made no bones about the fact that the club will not be spending big - with much finance tied up in convincing Marcelo Bielsa to stay on for a second season - Leeds have proved canny loan operators with Helder Costa heading to the club and Jack Clarke returning to Elland Road on a season-long loan after moving to Tottenham.
Jack Harrison has returned for a second season-long loan and Brighton defender Ben White has signed on an identical deal.

DONE DEALS - IN: Tomas Mejias (free), Marcus Browne (West Ham, undisclosed), Marc Bola (Blackpool, undisclosed), Andernee Dijksteel (Charlton, £2m).
OUT: Jordan Hugill, Rajiv van La Parra, Mo Besic (loan return), Stewart Downing (Blackburn, free), Jon-Obi Mikel (Trabzonspor, free), Enes Mahmutovic (MVV Maastricht, loan), Alex Pattison (Wycombe, loan), Aden Flint (Cardiff, £4m potentially rising to £6m), Luke Armstrong (Salford City, undisclosed), Martin Braithwaite (Leganes, undisclosed).
PRIORITIES: Realigning a squad which is top-heavy with ageing players on well-numerated contracts has made for a far-from-straightforward summer for Boro, who have been forced to be pragmatic in their incoming transfer dealings with parachute payments now gone.
A new transfer 'committee' including new head coach Jonathan Woodgate and featuring the club hierarchy will now make decisions collectively regarding the club's transfer business.
An up-and-coming winger has arrived in Marcus Browne, with Blackpool left-back Marc Bola also heading to Teesside, with Boro having also struck a deal to sign Charlton right-back Anfernee Dijksteel in a £2m move.
Boro have other irons in the fire at the end of the window and will be determined to ward off strong interest from Burnley in defender Dael Fry - subject of a failed £8m bid.
Keeping reliable custodian Darren Randolph and forward Britt Assombalonga will also be imperative for Boro, who have balanced the books following the sales of Aden Flint and Martin Braithwaite and the exit of another big-earner in Stewart Downing.
Carlton Morris, right, will be in Rotherham colours next season. Picture: John Walton/PA.
DONE DEALS - IN: Carlton Morris (Norwich City, loan), Shaun MacDonald (Wigan Athletic, free), Freddie Ladapo (Plymouth Argyle, undisclosed), Julien Lamy (unattached, free), Dan Barlaser (Newcastle United, season-long loan), Matthew Olosunde (unattached, free), Trevor Clarke (Shamrock Rovers, undisclosed), Daniel Iversen (Leicester City, loan).
OUT: Alex Bray, Emmanuel Onariase (released), Marek Rodak, Sean Raggett, Richie Towell (loan return), Joe Newell (Hibernian), Ryan Williams (Portsmouth, free), Will Vaulks (Cardiff, initial £2.1m, potentialy rising to £3.5m), Darren Potter (Tranmere, free), Dominic Ball (QPR, free), Ben Purrington (Charlton Athletic, undisclosed), David Ball (Wellington Phoenix, free), Matty Palmer (Bradford City, loan), Semi Ajayi (West Brom, initial £1.5m, potentially rising to £2.5m).
PRIORITIES: The Millers have concluded a fair bit of incoming business, including a a significant club-record deal to bring in Plymouth Argyle forward Freddie Ladapo for a club record £400,000.
They followed up with the addition of Newcastle United midfielder Dan Barlaser, who impressed at Accrington last term on a season-long loan and Ross County's Jamie Lindsay - with the arrival of the duo helping to mitigate for the loss of captain Will Vaulks and Semi Ajayi.
Vaulks has left for Cardiff for an initial £2.1m, rising to £3.5m. Ajayi has joined West Brom for £1.5m, with the amount increasing to £2.5m with add-ons.
Leicester City under-23 keeper Daniel Iversen will be handed the gloves after the loan return of Marek Rodak, with the Millers late-window priorities centring on their defence.
Rotherham have several targets, including Leyton Orient's Marvin Ekpiteta.
HIGH TIMES: Chris Wilder, left, with assistant Alan Knill. Picture: SportImage
DONE DEALS - IN: Luke Freeman (QPR, £5m), Phil Jagielka (free), Callum Robinson (Preston, £8m), Ravel Morrison (free agent), Ben Osborn (Nottingham Forest, undisclosed), Lys Mousset (Bournemouth, £9.5m), Dean Henderson (Manchester United, season-long loan), Oli McBurnie (Swansea City, £17.5m).
OUT: Daniel Lafferty, Kieran Dowell, Scott Hogan, Gary Madine, Marvin Johnson (loan return), Martin Cranie (Luton Town, free), Conor Washington (Hearts, free), Nathan Thomas (Carlisle United, season-long loan), Rhys Norrington-Davies (Rochdale, season-long loan), Paul Coutts (Fleetwood, free), Jake Eastwood (Scunthorpe United, loan), Tyler Smith (Bristol Rovers, loan), Caolan Lavery (Walsall, undisclosed), Ched Evans (Fleetwood, undisclosed), Regan Slater (Scunthorpe, loan).
PRIORITIES: A clear recruitment strategy has seen the Blades focus on recruiting the cream of the Championship crop as they plan their assault on life in the brave new world of the Premier League.
The club have smashed their transfer record on no less than three occasions to bring in Luke Freeman, Callum Robinson and Oli McBurnie, from second-tier sides QPR, Preston and Swansea City respectively.
Another significant deal has seen Bournemouth forward Lys Mousset arrive, while the loan return of Dean Henderson will be greeted with no less fanfare.
The signing of Nottingham Forest midfielder looks another shrewd one from Chris Wilder, still keen on bringing in another option in the middle of the park before the close of play.
Meanwhile, former Bramall Lane favourite Phil Jagielka has come 'home' for a second spell with the Blades, with the veteran defender - a free agent after leaving Everton - signing a one-year deal and offering a vastly-experienced defensive option.
A host of squad players have departed the club including Ched Evans, Caolan Lavery and Conor Washington.
NEW FACE: Kadeem Harris has arrived at Hillsborough from Cardiff City. Picture: PA.
DONE DEALS - IN: Julien Borner (Arminia Bielefeld, free), Moses Odubajo (Brentford, free), Kadeem Harris (Cardiff City, free), Paul Jones (Fleetwood, free), Massimo Luongo (QPR, £400,000).
OUT: Almen Abdi, Gary Hooper, David Jones, Marco Matias, Daniel Pudil (released), Michael Hector, Achraf Lazaar, Josh Onomah, Rolando Aarons (loan return), George Boyd (Peterborough United, free), Lucas Joao (Reading, rising to £5m).
PRIORITIES: Mindful of the parameters of Financial Fair Play and hamstring by a spell under a temporary 'soft embargo', it has been a stressful summer in many respects for Sheffield Wednesday
Keiren Westwood has signed a new deal at Hillsborough - while the club's desire to sign Michael Hector on a permanent basis has been well-documented, but so far unfulfilled.
It represents a clear priority ahead of Thursday's deadline.
The expected signings of Arminia Bielefeld captain Julian Börner and former Hull City defender Moses Odubajo have been sanctioned alongside the addition of Cardiff City winger Kadeem Harris, while Lucas Joao has joined Reading.
