Who's (not) on the move on transfer deadline day?
Updated 11:20pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in Sport
This live event has finished
- All quiet for Oscar on deadline day
- Albion reject reported £500k bid for Barnes
- Ulloa and Bridcutt stay
- Vicente still open on Albion return
- No business for Crawley
- Reds and Albion analysis in The Argus tomorrow
So then, plenty of late action - but not involving Albion or Crawley.
Fifteen hours on, I'm going to close this down.
That's all folks. No money found for Kightly or Ramage deal. Goodness knows what DF is thinking right now. He's heading home. #BWFC— @MarcIles 02 September 2013
Just an update on an earlier update - Peter Ramage goes to Barnsley rather than Bolton. Season-long loan. Barnsley come south on Dec 3.
Right, as we have been officially told by both Albion and Crawley that there will be no action tonight, I'm going to leave this blog for now and get on with something else.
Of course will be back on here and Twitter should that change.
I will leave you with the words of Palace legend John Salako in The Argus last week.
“I like Ulloa's touch, his awareness, his movement. He sees very big pictures of the game going on around him. I think he is very subtle with his touches. If he had another half a yard or yard of pace he would be, without a doubt, a top, top player. He holds the ball up, he is always available, is prepared to run the line, he works hard, he tracks back for the team and he is a born goalscorer.
No wonder they wanted him!
Swindon Town rejected a bid - rumoured to be around £250,000 - from an unnamed Championship side for Yaser Kasim. #BHAFC #STFC #DeadlineDay— @TheFL72 02 September 2013
In fairness we didn't spend much this time last year...we will have to see what loans we get and what happens in jan.. #bhafc— @forumwayseagull 02 September 2013
Former Crewe wonderkid Nick Powell is coming to the Championship, on loan from Manchester Utd to Wigan for the season.
It appears Albion's next visitors Bolton could have Palace defender Peter Ramage and (they hope) Stoke winger Michael Kightly in their ranks when they head south for Spanish Day. Bolton are looking to push through the deals tonight or, if not, in the loan window. But Kightly may well end up at Burnley.

Nothing against U21s v Everton, but not sure it is what we want as lead story on club website at mo. Patience is a virtue. Still 2 hrs left.— @TimDellor 02 September 2013
Meanwhile Albion's next opponents Reading are still hoping to net a striker but there are reports two deals fell through earlier in the day.
Well @AndyNaylorArgus said the window would close quietly but didn't think you meant nothing at all for #bhafc— @BHAFCAmex 02 September 2013
"I might suddenly make a couple of late swoops," Harry Redknapp, boss of Albion's forthcoming opponents QPR, tells 5live. Tom Carroll is likely to be one. 'Arry says he is also likely to bring in "good players" on loan.
Football operations and media staff have all left the Amex. No ins or outs to report today. Loan window opens next week. #BHAFC— @OfficialBHAFC 02 September 2013
Albion have just tweeted that their football operations and media staff have left The Amex. There will be nothing to report.
A top source in East Lancs says Burnley's final offer for Ashley Barnes was £500,000 - but Albion turned them down.
Just tweeted a picture of the man who returned to action today, albeit for 30 minutes, Bruno.
RT @OfficialBHAFC: Bruno makes a return to action during the U21 game at Loftus Road earlier today. #QPR 1 #BHAFC 2 http://t.co/RE2oFfj2Fm— @FootyFans92Tour 02 September 2013
Confirmation again that we do not expect late activity involving Albion.
By the way, suggestions you might have read about Ulloa wanting to go back to Spain does not tally at all either with what he told me when we chatted on three occasions very recently or with what he has told a contact in Spain.
Of course his recently-arrived family will need some settling-in time, especially as the weather gets colder. And of course clubs and footballers always have to keep options open to a degree in case a fantastic offer comes along. But all indications are that Ulloa is happy where he is.
Looking at the wider context of the Championship, there seems be activity expected both in and out of Charlton tonight.
My contact on SUPER, the sports paper in Valencia, has confirmed he has heard nothing about Vicente finding himself a club. Not that it is something he is chasing - but he would have heard had Vicente been linked with a club in Spain.
Thought I'd tweet that last photo to show an admittedly out of focus Andrew Crofts working out with Wales this afternoon.
Photo: Cardiff City's @declanjohn7 training with the #Wales squad at the Vale earlier this evening. http://t.co/QGTEediVBr— @FAWales 02 September 2013
Albion's next opponents Reading are aiming to have a new striker in by 11pm.
Bullet points from our call to Crawley boss Richie Barker a few minutes ago.
- No transfer activity expected this evening.
- The unidentified club who were in for Kyle McFadzean did not come back in today.
- There was interest in Nicky Adams but he did NOT want to leave.
So bit of huff n puff from various clubs but looking quiet on the Albion front as we head to deadline.— @johnnycburger 02 September 2013
In the pool at Falmer today was #BHAFC's fantastic #LuaLua who high-fived my kid and made his day. YAY FOR LUA LUA!!!— @soozysuze 02 September 2013
It won't affect Albion for now but Millwall have extended Shaun Derry's loan deal until January 1.
Derry was answering a few questions about his future in the mixed zone at The Amex on Saturday.
The Lions have looked a bit more solid of late although I thought Derry was badly caught out by Andrea Orlandi in the incident which led to Alan Dunne's second yellow card on Saturday.
The Seagulls visit Millwall on March 1.
Crystal Palace - the club who have had just the odd mention in Albion-related transfer stories today - have signed Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan for three years.
Richie Barker will be offering his assessment of how his squad looks after deadline day in The Argus tomorrow.
Our Crawley man Steve Hollis is on the phone now, checking all is quiet with Richie Barker.
I'm eavesdropping here but it sounds like that is indeed the case. Nothing likely to happen this evening.
If so, I'd say it has been a good few days for the Reds.
Well, @sendformethen, there was the link with Nacho Cases at Sporting. My oppo in Gijon was adamant Albion were keen on him. Cases, an Orlandi-type attacking midfielder, remains at Sporting where he looks set to run down the last year of his contract.
Bored now. All i want is for us to be linked with a few random foreigners i've never heard of before today. #bhafc #antiflair #easilypleased— @sendformethen 02 September 2013
Today's lack of #bhafc signings shows what this season is all about.. Transitional. Just hope we can keep hold of Liam, that'll be AMAZING.— @StevenBHA 02 September 2013
Today it's been 3 years since I signed my first professional contract.. Time has just flown by! Really happy to still be in the game!— @TAgdestein 02 September 2013
With reference to the archive picture of a few minutes ago...
Buzzing for @jasoneuell on his appointment @CAFCofficial— @cocowasp 02 September 2013
I'll only tweet from now if there are any changes to the situation re: #bhafc. Need a tweet retreat!— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
Of course, he had also left the building when Deano, David and Dobbie signed on August 31 last year!!!
Tempting fate, perhaps, but tomorrow's back page written for now and will be heading home shortly from Argus House. #bhafc— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
Andy Naylor has left the building.
Remember the end of the summer market three years ago? Albion secured these three players and paraded them the following night ahead of a Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat by Leyton Orient.
Kazenga LuaLua joined on loan from Newcastle and Fran Sandaza was on board as a free agent having been released by Dundee United.
On the right of the picture is Torbjorn Agdestein, the only genuine deadline-beating full transfer of the three. I always wonder whether the way he was announced to the crowd, such as it was, that night maybe gave the impression he was a more high profile signing than was actually the case.
In fact, "Toby" was a development squad addition at the time and never played the starring role enjoyed by LuaLua and, when the occasion demanded, a goal.
He is now at Inverness while Sandaza plies his trade at Lugo in the Spanish second tier.
Right, as the lull continues, memories of a deadline day from the past....
While other players have got themselves fixed up - or at least popped up on a trial somewhere - it has all been very quiet regarding Vicente.
Perhaps that is reflected in news earlier today - as reported by Andy Naylor - that now would be a good time for Albion to make him an offer.
The former Valencia man and his family told us they were happy in Brighton when we spoke to them in May but, at the same time, I got the impression Vicente was set on a return to Spain.
He told David Lopez the same when they met up this summer. But it appears no offer has been forthcoming. Just a chance to go and play in Greece.
Could be flurry of business by Boro, the hosts for #bhafc Dec 14. Genk striker Jelle Vossen + Norwich duo Jacob Butterfield, Daniel Ayala.— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
Don't think Jim White will be getting too excited about that one!
RT @crawleytown: Good news. Here it is. We will have cash turnstiles in operation from Saturday: http://t.co/thq8Ml4vYM— @stevehollis75 02 September 2013
Here's the breaking news from Reds....
Reckon it's going to be someone leaving @crawleytown. Barker said he didn't expect any signings unless someone left— @stevehollis75 02 September 2013
Crawley have announced some news is imminent from the Checkatrade.com Stadium as it is now called.
No idea what it is but our Reds man Steve Hollis is here ready to handle it....
I take it Calde is not impressed by deadline day.
Skysports undestands official day...— @I_CALDERON_14 02 September 2013
Sounds as if Leonardo Ulloa no longer an option for #cpfc (targetting Bendtner instead). #bhafc still reluctant to deal over Bridcutt...— @domfifield 02 September 2013
My information on Barnes and Burnley is second and third bids made and rejected today. #bhafc— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
Crawley Town's press office announced several hours ago they would be shutting down relatively early and going home to watch TV.
I seem to remember them saying something similar at the end of the January window, then being called back to work to sort out a late deal.
Not saying that will happen tonight. Just saying you can never be sure.
In other news, I caught some of that Development Squad game at QPR on the live stream, earlier. Great goal by George Barker from a nice move to wipe out Rangers' early lead.
Commentator Tony Incenzo seemed impressed by Lewis Dunk, albeit unsure of his track record.
And it was amusing to hear them talk about players who might be back for the first team game at Loftus Road on September 18, wondering whether "Bruno" among others would be back in action while commentating on "Saltor" running down the wing in front of them.
It has been interesting to follow things off and on from afar so far today.
Clearly Crystal Palace are looking for some presence in attack.
So what were the options than 'Olly. Vaz Te from West Ham? Bendtner?
Hold on. Who's that man from Argentina?
(This clip requires volume to be turned on)
Afternoon everyone, Brian Owen here taking over the blog from my colleague Mike Legg.
I seem to remember being here with Leggy a little more than a year ago updating signing after signing by the Seagulls on August 31. There was that classic photo of Gus Poyet staring at his phone in his office at The Amex. We didn't know if he was checking for news on signings or just staring in disbelief at how Atletico Madrid were taking Chelsea apart in the Super Cup!
No European trophies being sorted out tonight. We're not expecting a flood of signings either - but you never know.
Free agent Lee Camp has signed for West Brom. The former Derby and Forest goalkeeper joins on a rolling monthly contract until January
Genk's Belgium international ace Jelle Vossen is said to be a target for Middlesbrough.
Nottingham Forest believed to be in talks with Hull City about a move for striker Matty Fryatt.
And Sky reckon Wigan are chasing Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes with £6million on offer
Not many turned out to see Joe Baker's unveiling it seems looking at the picture below. Mind you, at least he was spared embarrassing himself with the keepy uppies in his brogues. Never easy, trust me.
Baker joined Arsenal for a club record fee of £70,000 in 1962. Arsenal are about to smash their transfer record today

Striker Harry Bunn joins Sheffield United on a 28-day youth loan from Man City.
Not good news for Chelsea fans if it is true PSG are to open talks with Juan Mata with a view to a move to the French capital. L'Equipe reckon it could happen tonight
Sorry about that bit of a break there. Been talking Brighton signings but this time with the rugby club's player-coach Neil McGovern. They start life in London One this season after promotion last season.
My understanding is Forest asked about Bridcutt off the back of original Palace bid, were firmly told not for sale and made no offer. #bhafc— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
Liverpool papers are reporting Everton's bid to take former Albion youngster Gareth Barry on loan from Manchester City are likely to fail.
Well-placed club sources revealed last night there was near-zero chance of Bridcutt or Ulloa leaving. Can't see £2m changing that. #bhafc— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
2:12pm Mon 2 Sep 13
@TransferTweeter: #Chelsea midfielder Josh McEachran is being linked with a loan move to Brighton #BHAFC #TransferDeadlineDay
Palace pulling out all the stops to get Bridcutt (not) if they have indeed raised their bid to £2 million. #bhafc— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
After the lull comes the storm.
Arch-rivals Palace reported to have upped their bid for Liam Bridcutt to £2million.
Billy Davies' Nottingham Forest also said to be joining the chase for the midfielder.
That comes from The Daily Telegraph's Midlands reporter.
#cpfc have increased their bid to £2m for #bhafc midfielder Liam Bridcutt. Understand #nffc have also made a bid for him today— @John__Percy 02 September 2013
Former Albion loan signing Abdul Razak has joined Anzhi Makhachkala on loan for the season. Never set the world alight at Seagulls and a move to Russia could make or break him it could be argued.
Sky Sports reckon Stoke City are close to signing Aston Villa's Stephen Ireland on a season-long loan deal.
Blackpool were reportedly interested in taking the Villa outcast so that could scupper any interest they had.
Crawley's League One rivals Sheffield United have bagged Belgian Florent Cuvelier on a three-year deal foran undisclosed fee from Stoke City.
Marouane Fellaini could be on his way to Old Trafford and a reunion with former boss David Moyes. Talks are said to be progressing well.
Last Saturday's Albion opponents Millwall have terminated forward Dany N'Guessan's contract by mutual consent. Crawley's League One rivals Swindon could be his next destination.

Start the car ... West Brom are reported to have given Cardiff City permission to talk to striker Peter Odenwingie
Bruno on the bench for Albion development team against QPR.
Jack Hunt's move to Crystal Palace is a four-year deal and undisclosed fee.
It's not confirmed but it looks as if Arsenal are finally going to spend. They have agreed a 50m euros deal with Real Madrid to sign Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil. That's over £42million in English money
Nearly noon and 11 hours to go. Situation unchanged on the #bhafc front. Nothing doing.— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
Palace have done #bhafc one favour, by signing Huddersfield's attack-minded defender Jack Hunt. The Terriers visit The Amex on December 21.— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013

Just read THe Argus 10.58 post--Guaranteed Signings tomorrow--Ho Ho got me going for a minute!!
Excitement mounting as Gareth Bale's unveiling in Madrid nears. Obligatory keepy uppies from the wing wizard will be expected after he passed his medical earlier today
At the end of August window 2012 #bhafc signed Orlandi, then a late hat-trick of Lopez, Dobbie, Hammond. Scenario more subdued a year on.— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
Victor Moses on loan to Liverpool from Chelsea in a bit of Premier League movement. Plenty of pace in the Reds attack this season
Source close to 'The Dagger' in Spain: "It is a good moment for Brighton to try to sign again Vicente." #bhafc— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
Guaranteed Albion signings tomorrow - at the club shop.
Head coach Oscar, Jones, Andrews, Agustien and Ward will be at the Seagulls Superstore between 2pm and 3pm
Free name printing on the back of shirts too - handy if Seagulls sign Jan Venegoor of Hesselink. Save a fortune.
Wigan believed to be in the hunt for Stoke's Cameron Jerome as well as Reading. Two clubs with clout battling it out there
It is not a new signing at Albion but having Bruno back from injury is welcome news for Oscar Garcia. More competition for places in defence.
At last some encouraging injury news for OG re: Bruno's outing for under 21's today. Spaniard has been hamstrung since opening day. #bhafc— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
#bhafc could be facing Cameron Jerome in their next match, but only if Stoke get a striker in to open the door to a move to Reading.— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
Once the loan window opens we may see striker movement by #bhafc in and out. Makes sense to get George Barker more first team experience.— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 September 2013
Former Albion loan signing Bradley Johnson reckons transfer deadline day should be a national holiday. I bet productivity is down in most offices where football fans are sat at a computer or have their phone to hand.
Crawley obviously not expecting much business in or out then. Reds fans will be relieved if they can keep hold of Kyle McFadzean. His stock may have risen a nothc in the wake of Crawley's 2-0 win over Peterborough on Saturday.
So it looks like it won't be a late day in the press office and we'll be home in time for the new series of Doc Marten. Excellent— @crawleytown 02 September 2013
Transfer deadline day today. Just spoken to CEO Michael Dunford and he's expecting to go home at the normal time!— @crawleytown 02 September 2013
Championship Derby County are expected to wait until the emergency loan marker opens to bring in cover for their injured midfielder Jeff Hendrick

Liverpool set their alarms clocks early, they have done their second signing of the day - completing a deal for Paris St-Germain defender Mamadou Sakho. He arrives fast on the heels of Sporting Lisbon's Tiago Llori

A quick perusal of Twitter suggest Albion fans expect no incomings and fear outgoings. We'll see.
Of course the main interest for Seagulls and Reds fans right now is in deal they hope WON'T happen. As things stand it appears Leo Ulloa, Liam Bridcutt and Kyle McFadzean will still be at their current clubs come midnight.
Updates from both Albion and Reds are in The Argus today. As, indeed, is in-depth coverage and reaction to the Seagulls' 1-1 draw with Millwall and Crawley's excellent win at Peterborough.
Just in case you missed it, here's the online latest from Albion which went on our website this morning.
Here we go then - last day of the transfer window and a final chance, for now, for teams to bring in players on full transfers.
Of course there is still the loan window to come and teams can snap up free agents outside the transfer wind,w
But deadline day is always a time for plenty of activity around the divisions. We'll keep an eye on what is going on at Albion and Crawley, plus any other deals which affect our clubs indirectly or are of interest for other reasons.
