What is happening elsewhere in the Championship?
Bolton Wanderers could be set to sign former Premier League frontmen Eidur Gudjohnsen and Emile Heskey, with manager Neil Lennon suggesting deals for the evergreen strike duo could be on the cards after watching them closely in training.
Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino is in hot water with the FA, who have disqualified the Italian owner and asked the controversial 58-year-old to resign after finding him guilty of tax evasion.
The Whites supremo has said he will appeal the suspension, which will last until March 2015, the date on which his conviction will be deemed spent under UK law.
Elsewhere, Middlesbrough have parted company with assistant manager Craig Hignett, with Aitor Karanka believed to have been responsible for the decision after citing 'differences in decisions and points of view' for the decision.
Karanka himself has been charged with improper conduct by the FA after being sent off by referee Mark Clattenburg in the dying embers of his side's 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers at the weekend for his complaints over Rudy Gestede's late equaliser.
Meanwhile, Rotherham United midfielder Lee Frecklington has put pen to paper on a two-year deal at the New York Stadium.
