Rangers are looking to strengthen with reports suggesting that a move for Standard Liege midfielder Nicolas Raskin could be close, while Celtic having secured a number of players over the window may look to trim some of the squad. Giorgos Giakoumakis is expected to depart, while there has been some late interest in defender Stephen Welsh.
Aberdeen, Hibs, Hearts and Dundee United could all do some late business with Tony Watt potentially moving on deadline day. Other teams around the league as we look to keep you up to date with the latest transfers rumours and round ups in our live blog. We’ll also bring you the big Deadline Day moves from down south throughout the day.
Scottish Transfer Deadline Day LIVE: Raskin to Rangers latest | Hibs weigh up second Jonny Williams bid | Newcastle sign Scotland Under-21 defender
Here’s a look at what to expect from each cinch Premiership club on deadline day.
Will there be late interest in FItzwater?
Livingston defender Jack Fitzwater has attracted significant praise this season, with interest mounting in the young defender.
He is out of contract at the end of the season but the Lions are very reluctant to sell him so late in the transfer window. Could we see a club make a move today?
Hearts making moves?
While there is not a significant number of signings expected at Tynecastle today, Robbie Neilson has been fairly set on adding one player to his squad. That one player is Callum Paterson, but it is understood there are other targets
A short-term loan signing could be the direction the club go down with a view to bringing Paterson in during the summer when his contract with Sheffield Wednesday expires. Watch this space...
What can we expect from St Johnstone today? Callum Davidson aid after the weekend defeat by Rangers that he wanted to bring in reinforcements to his squad.
The Saints had a bid rejected for Ross County forward Jordan White and have a long-held interest in Dundee’s Zak Rudden.
A move for him could accelerate in the coming hours for the striker...
We’re at that point of the day when fans are desperately seeking clues over signings and rumoured deals... It is going to be a long day.
Watt is going on at Dundee United?
Dundee United are one of only two Premiership sides yet to enter the transfer market heading into deadline day – even though there appear clear areas to strengthen.
There is still a requirement for a defensive midfielder with none of Liam Fox’s current options fitting the bill. Yet, incomings at Tannadice will largely depend on those who depart.
Tony Watt could be one such player to exit. The striker is a man in-demand having become a bit-part player, starting just one game since the return from the World Cup break.
One for the Tartan Army
Newcastle have signed Scotland Under-21 defender Harrison Ashby from West Ham.
The 21-year-old, who has made seven senior appearances for the Hammers, has joined for a reported £3million fee.
“I could not be happier. I can’t get the smile off my face and it’s a proud day for me and my family,” Ashby told nufc.co.uk.
Newcastle manager Eddie Howe said they had signed the defender with a long-term view.
“Harrison is a very talented young player with a lot of potential so we are delighted to sign him and are are looking forward to working with him in this exciting new chapter of his career,” he said.
While it looks like Rangers may land Raskin today, one player that may not make it to Ibrox is Swansea’s Morgan Whittaker.
The player was recalled from his loan with Plymouth Argyle and according to reports, it was because the Swans wanted him in their first-team squad rather in preparation forhis sale.
The 22-year-old had contributed to Argyle’s season so far with the Pilgrims sitting top of League 1. He certainly made an impact in the Devon Deby
With Hibs in action tonight it is safe to say that they are set for a very busy Deadline Day.
And they could have their work cut out in trying to land Jonny Williams from Swindon Town. The Robins have rejected a five-figure bid from Hibs for the Welsh midfielder
Williams, 29, is out of contract at the end of the season and his long-term future is up in the air. Capped 33 times for Wales, the player also has admirers in England as well as Hibs, who are now mulling over whether to return with an improved offer.
