There might be a ‘media blackout’ but that doesn’t mean agents, players, managers and scouts aren’t talking to the press. Whether any of the rumours come true is something else though…

Danny Graham will probably join before the end of the transfer window. At least it looks that way, but then you can never be too sure. Or maybe you can?

Jordan Rhodes definitely won’t be leaving Blackburn. Although Gary Bowyer is very clear that he’s not for sale. Which might mean that he is.

Shane Long, despite being linked, went and joined Hull City. They’re in the Premier League. For how long remains to be seen of course.

Connor Wickham is “loving it” at Sheffield Wednesday on loan. But what does that mean anyway?

Graham Dorrans is nailed on to join. Well, it certainly looked that way the other week. Except he hasn’t joined yet. Which means nothing obviously.

David Vaughan is here on loan until next week and if we’ve got any sense we’ll do anything and everything we can to keep him. Because he’s bloody good, that’s why.

Nathaniel Chalobah has gone back to Chelsea. Except he’s gone straight out on loan again to Middlesbrough, where he’ll probably look the business again. Or maybe he won’t.

Ahmed Fathi isn’t coming. Neither is Gedo. Nor Mahmoud Hassan ‘Trezeguet’. It’s slim pickings from Egyptian club Al Ahly. At least that’s what we’re told.

Ishmael Miller is going back to Yeovil Town. Because that’s what Gary Johnson wants. We know this because he keeps telling us every week.

Matt Derbyshire might be going to Doncaster Rovers. Well, the rumour is that they want him but Paul Dickov isn’t giving much away.

Marcus Tudgay. Nope, nothing on him.

Sonny Bradley is attracting interest. But nobody’s heard of him. Maybe he’s particularly good-looking? More news as we get it.

Grant Leadbitter is staying at Middlesbrough and there’s nothing we can do about. As we thought. Well, it doesn’t really matter what we think does it?

Karl Darlow is interesting Liverpool and Tottenham and every-bloody-one. But he’s staying. For now. Fawaz said so.

Jamaal Lascelles is practically an Arsenal player. Or a Spurs player. Except he’s not. He’s staying too. Fawaz said so.

Chris Baird is attracting interest too. But we’re not sure why.

Radi Majewski is going to Huddersfield on loan with a view to a permanent move. It was on Twitter so it must be true.

Matty Fryatt has been linked for months so he’s bound to come, right? Especially as we’ve been trying to sign him since 2005.

Nicky Maynard went to Wigan. We didn’t want him anyway, did we?

Lucciano Becchio is still at Norwich. Even we don’t fancy paying his not unsubstantial wages.

Bakary Sako? No, me neither.

Liam Bridcutt is set to be reunited with Gus Poyet at Sunderland. Obviously.

Matěj Vydra is on loan at West Brom from Udinese. The owners of Udinese also own Watford. Vydra isn’t coming.

Wes Morgan has extended his contract at Leicester City. He wasn’t really going to leave the champions elect was he? (No pressure there then…)

Simon Gillett is staying at Bristol City. It wasn’t long ago Forest fans were desperate not to lose him, how times change.

Nakhi Wells signed for Huddersfield didn’t he, for about half his rumoured £3m tag.
