Huddersfield Town were one of 14 Championship teams involved on deadline day as they sealed the signing of Cardiff City central defender Mark Hudson on a two-year deal, and kept Sean Scannell and Danny Ward out of the clutches of Millwall and Wolves respectively.

While Town added one player to their ranks, plenty of other second-tier managers were busy adding multiple last-minute signings to complement their existing squads.

And while Town can consider 2014 deadline day a success, there are certainly other clubs around the division that will be content with their work after a frantic deadline day.

Likewise, some teams will not be happy with the business they could or, perhaps more pertinently, couldn't get done before the window slammed shut at 11pm.

Have a look at all the winners and losers from the 2014 summer transfer window deadline day below.


Blackburn Rovers: Gary Bowyer can be extremely content with the work he achieved yesterday as he managed to bring in a central defender in Shane Duffy who, despite suffering relegation with Yeovil Town, was widely considered one of the best young prospects last term.

That much is reflected in the supposed £3m fee it has taken to prise the 22-year-old away from Everton while the signing of Middlesbrough goalkeeper Jason Steele looks a shrewd one as back-up to Paul Robinson.

Ryan Tunnicliffe represents a slight wildcard option given that he has failed to make any real progress since transferring from Manchester United to Fulham but could come good with a move back to more familiar surroundings up north.

Bournemouth: Given the links with Derby County's Johnny Russell in the build-up to deadline day, it may seem strange to include a side that completed just one addition on this list but, in Andrew Surman, Cherries boss Eddie Howe added a possibly decisive final piece to the jigsaw.

Surman excelled on loan at Dean Court last season and is expected to offer Howe the versatility across the middle he has possibly lacked since seeing him head back to Carrow Road at the end of last season.

The other major positive which has been overlooked somewhat, is that Derby didn't come in for Matt Ritchie as had been suggested. That could have paved the way for a deal for Russell but in Ritchie they have a proven matchwinner.

Middlesbrough: The early signings of Yanic Wildschut and Jelle Vossen were enough to whet the appetite of Boro fans and, while a move for Chelsea's Lewis Baker failed to come to fruition, Jamal Blackman was snared from the Blues instead in goal.

Blackman was not the stand-out name, however, with Wildschut perhaps the most exciting in that he is young, speedy and possesses a fierce shot on him - his arrival will increase the quality on either flank as he can operate both to equal effect.

But Vossen will have got Boro fans most excited - the Belgian having played Champions League football just last season and regarded as a blue-chip addition to a strikeforce already containing the predatory Kike.

Reading: Like Bournemouth, Nigel Adkins' side may strike as a slight surprise in that they added just one player to their squad, with fans seemingly up in arms about the sole arrival of Glenn Murray.

Although the Royals may lack experience in certain areas, their strikeforce looks considerably more dangerous with Murray present and as Simon Cox steadily works his way back to first-team fitness.

Pavel Pogrebnyak floundered when Reading met Town recently and became the first striker the Terriers had faced who failed to wreak havoc but, having scored 30 Championship goals in 2012/2013 with Crystal Palace, Murray will hope to emulate his previous efforts and prove any doubters wrong.

Rotherham United: Steve Evans could be forgiven for handing himself and his negotiators a giant pat on the back this morning for two pieces of business which were a case of better late than never.

The Millers have hardly struggled in the embryonic stages of this campaign but there has been a feeling that Championship quality has been lacking at crucial stages, particularly in attack.

In Jonson Clarke-Harris, he has the perfect quick, hungry and precocious talent to work with and harness his raw ability and in Luciano Becchio he has a seasoned campaigner at this level bidding to make his mark after seeing his career stall badly at Norwich City.

Wigan Athletic: Speaking of Norwich, the Canaries can feel slightly hard done by that they fail to feature on the list having been proactive in their hunt for a replacement for ankle injury victim Ryan Bennett.

But Wigan were the outright winners of the day as they not only pocketed an impressive £7m from Crystal Palace for James McArthur, but they also effectively nailed down a replacement in William Kvist after the early double deal of Adam Forshaw and Andy Delort from Brentford and FC Tours respectively.

Forshaw was earmarked as a long-term replacement for Jordi Gomez after the Spaniard moved to Sunderland while Delort will finally give the Latics a cutting edge up front. When you factor in Emyr Huws' loan deal from Manchester City being converted into a permanent one, you can understand why Latics chief Uwe Rosler was so chuffed with his work.


Birmingham City: Although it was actually the Blues who pulled the plug on Seb Hines' mooted switch from Middlesbrough to St Andrew's, that will not lighten manager Lee Clarke's mood.

The Blues chief must now contend with limited resources defensively after Gavin Gunning's posterior cruciate ligament injury and it seems odd that no plan B was put in place in the event that Hines did not sign.

They have remained tight-lipped as to why the deal did not go ahead but it means Clarke will have to watch on anxiously and pray no more injuries are forthcoming or his side could struggle at the back.

Blackpool: It could not really have gone any worse for the Seasiders, who were probably the worst of the bunch in terms of securing incomings on the final day.

In the build-up to the deadline, Blackpool boss Jose Riga had urged chairman Karl Oyston to go out and get him four signings which - you sense - may have gone some way to easing the tensions between the two but ultimately, nothing happened.

There were suggestions at the Blackpool end that the Championship midfielder they went for was Huddersfield Town's Danny Ward at a fee which could have risen to £400,000 while talks with a striker at a French club and a Belgian defender also proved futile.

Bolton Wanderers: Considering the early-season struggles the Trotters have encountered, it seemed staggering that no additions were actively sought and it was only when news emerged of possible interest in two members of the star cast in Mark Davies and Jermaine Beckford, that possible arrivals came to light.

Boss Dougie Freedman may well elect to bring in the likes of Owen Garvan from Crystal Palace and Greg Halford of Nottingham Forest in the emergency loan window but he will breathe a huge sigh of relief that Fulham were unable to get a deal done for Beckford.

The striker's relationship with the club's fans looks as if it may be well beyond repair but he has proven pedigree at this level and his departure would only have left Joe Mason and Craig Davies as bona fide striking options.

Leeds United: Having announced the signing of Brian Montenegro, as well as converting Souleymane Doukara's loan into something more permanent, everything looked up for Leeds as the clock ticked down towards 11pm.

What then unfolded was to prove a social media hit but a disaster for the club's own Twitter account user, whose ambiguous tweet led supporters to believe more incomings were imminent.

As central frontman Matt Smith headed for Fulham to join up with fellow former Whites striker Ross McCormack, and as Dominic Poleon secured a move away to Oldham Athletic, fans were up in arms and with good reason.

Millwall: The Lions seemed confident that Scannell would be signed at some point during deadline day and while it is unclear how far any potential deal was down the line, there seemed to be a belief at the South London end that he could be on his way.

Angel Martinez has been snapped up outside the window as a free agent and current trialist Jermaine Pennant may yet prove the contingency plan to Scannell, but there was no hiding the disappointment as the Lions failed to force through a deal.

It meant that the day was over before it really began for the Lions, but the signing of Mathias Ranegie in the days leading up to the deadline may appease any unhappy in the final hours.

Wolves: It has been patently clear, irrespective of their current lofty third-placed Championship standing, that Kenny Jackett's side desperately require a striker.

Having retained the nucleus of the squad that were promoted from League One last season and given their solid start, the manager may now feel differently and allow Nouha Dicko to continue leading the line.

But if injury were to strike to either Dicko or partner in crime Bakary Sako off the left flank, they would be in serious need of additional firepower to sustain their early challenge for promotion and a move for Chris Wood from Leicester City, as well as persistent suggestions they were in a battle with Blackpool for Terriers winger Ward, failed to materialise into anything substantial yesterday.
