13:25 - Todmorden News understand that Burnley reject a bid of around £2.5million from Sunderland for midfielder Chris Eagles.

14:30 - The Premier League announced that it will grant applications from clubs to complete transactions after the 5pm deadline provided that: 1. The board receives email confirmation from the two clubs involved that a deal has been agreed in principle; and 2. The club signing the player can satisfy the board that the prevailing weather conditions have prevented the signing from being completed by the 5pm deadline.

15:49 - Remco van der Schaaf agrees to a loan deal with Brondby which will run until the end of the season, the deal looks set to be completed within the next 30minutes.

Adverse weather means an unexpected early finish from work and a choice between Hetty Wainthropp Investigates or keeping an eye on transfer news. Looks like Hetty has to take a back seat this time ! Lots of rumours abounding and the Eagles to Sunderland one worries me a touch. Bid rejected seems to suggest ' player for sale at the right price ' to me. Hope Eagles is a Claret this time tomorrow.

Just been informed by our source that Stoke have pulled out of negotiations for McCann, but it is yet to be confirmed. Another side is still in talks with Burnley though.

For heavens sake, if Remco is fit to play,why the hell are we hiving him off out on loan? At the moment we now have just 21 fit and available players including the young guns. Crazy!
