Here is the latest from today’s Championship transfer news.
Callum Connolly has spoken of his delight after scoring the only goal in Blackpool’s 1-0 win over Reading on the opening day.
The defender’s early goal claimed all three points for the Seasiders as they kicked off their campaign with a win and a clean sheet.
Following the match, Connolly said: “It’s a good start to what we are trying to do here, so I’m really pleased.
“I think we played well in the first half, and got the ball rolling really well. We had a good amount of possession and utilised that really well, but of course when you only have that one goal lead, you end up trying to hang on.
“I wouldn’t say we let out standards drop or that we felt comfortable with the lead, but I think we could have been better with the ball in the second half.”
