We take a look at SEVEN deals that may take place before deadline day on Monday. Scroll and click through the pages:
1. Alex Woodyard to Various

2. Tom Elliott to Ipswich Town
Elliott’s pre-season injury was said to have delayed his move to East Anglian and Ipswich fans will not enjoy hearing that he is in the squad for Millwall’s Carabao Cup tie at Oxford United tonight. This one will almost certainly go down to the final day.

3. Herbie Kane to Various
While it has been suggested that Kane will be involved in the Reds’ Carabao Cup campaign, there is still a glimmer of hope that he will rejoin a League One club on loan. Portsmouth, Sunderland, Doncaster - his employers last season - and Coventry have been credited with interest.

4. Jack Baldwin to Various
Sunderland manager Jack Ross admitted Baldwin’s future may lie elsewhere after being unable to promise him a regular starting spot on Wearside. Could a fellow League One team come in for him before Monday?
