Check HERE for all your Bolton transfer mentalness…

16:27- Afternoon everyone. So, with me not waking up until 3pm, and Twitter dying on the most important day OF THE YEAR, I thought I’d have missed something concrete to give you. I have not.

I’ll update this page as and when something happens, and when Twitter inevitably dies again. So far, all rumours, but the Medo deal looks almost certain. Don’t know much about the lad, but we need options in central midfield, especially when Spearing returns to Liverpool in the summer. If Spurs were after him last year, he must be worth a 300k punt.

Alonso is wanted by several parties, but we’ll see…

16:48 – Just seen that Louis Saha has left Sunderland by mutual consent. Surely we could offer him a short term, pay-as-you-play deal?

18:20 – So, this is currently less interesting than I thought. With that in mind, who should we be looking at? Comments below Vital readers!

18:52 – So Stephen Warnock has moved to Leeds on a free transfer. A shame; it would have been great to get him back. However, good news in the left back department is the closing of the Italian transfer window, meaning that Marcos Alonso cannot complete a move to Fiorentina. Also, a Medo medical is underway.

19:13 – Michael O’Halloran is staying at Tranmere for the rest of the season. He can stay there; he’s hardly setting the world alight, and I doubt he’ll make it with us any time in the near future.

It also looks like we’ve signed young defender Cian Bolger. More when this is confirmed.

20:29 – Right, I’m back from the shop, and we’ve signed 20-year old Bolger from Leicester. Looks like one for the future, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him given a chance before the end of the season. Especially if we don’t sign another defender by midnight. Medo deal still not done.

20:36 Afobe has gone back to Arsenal apparently.

YYYYEEEEEESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!

21:57 – It looks like we have signed Steve De Ridder on an initial one-month loan deal from Southampton. I have never heard of him, although that doesn’t necessarily mean he won’t do a good job for us. We’ve needed a winger since Petrov left, and whilst this probably isn’t the player we wanted, it may be the one we need.

22:32 – Sorry everyone, quite distracted by the Stokies on the telly. Just look at them! Oh, and the Medo Kamara deal is DONE! Let’s hope he’s as good as he’s being made out to be. Half an hour to go…….

23:10 – WINDOW CLOSED! A very productive transfer window for the Whites is over. Dougie has managed to get rid of a bit of the deadwood left over from the Coyle regime; whilst bringing in players that can not only help in the future, but can contribute to a late push towards the playoff places. COYWM, and goodnight!
