Blackpool have enjoyed a busy summer transfer window thus far, bringing in a host of quality new signings as they gear up for the rigours of Championship football this season.As well as players coming in, a fair few have also parted company with the club, including Oliver Turnton who made a surprise switch to Huddersfield Town.Discussing the move, the 28-year-old said: “Just to play at Wembley for a start was a major career highlight. But to achieve promotion as well, it was a massive achievement for us and for myself personally.“I’m ready for a new challenge, though, and I’m happy to be here. I felt like a change would be good for me and it was maybe a good time to leave Blackpool“Once I heard Huddersfield were interested, I was instantly drawn to it. The club has got a big history and only a couple of years ago they were playing in the Premier League. It’s a good place to be.“I like the way the club sees football and their different way of playing, which certainly drew me in to try something different. It’s a lot of fast, intense football which I’m all for and I can imagine it’s exciting to play.”Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Blackpool and the rest of the Championship, as the reaction to the summer transfer window activity and build-up to the eagerly-anticipated new season continues:
