Championship transfer news: Huddersfield Town defender ‘expected to leave’ in summer, Blackburn Rovers make contact over Leeds United star

EFL Championship clubs are preparing for busy summer transfer windows with several top talents attracting interest and many teams in need of new signings.

A Huddersfield Town defender is expected to leave the club in the summer while Middlesbrough are expecting a summer bidding war for defender Djed Spence and it will take a record transfer fee for them to accept a bid.

Meanwhile, an on-loan Aston Villa attacker has caught the eye of Bundesliga sides during his loan spell with Preston North End.

Sheffield United have signed Filip Uremovic after the defender’s contract with Ruben Kazan was suspended and the Blades could extend that deal beyond the summer if FIFPRO convince FIFA to impose tougher sanctions on Russian club sides.

West Brom have triggered an option to extend the contract of one of their experienced midfielders while a Stoke City defender has said he wants to stay with the Potters despite rumoured Premier League interest.

Blackburn Rovers have been in contact with Leeds United regarding a currently injured winger while two Premier League sides are reportedly interested in a Nottingham Forest defender after he impressed in their FA Cup tie with Liverpool.

Finally, Newcastle United’s long term pursuit of a Bournemouth defender appears to have taken a step forward with the St James’ Park side believed to be “readying” a bid.
