Rochdale have signed defender Matthew Flynn on a permanent deal from Macclesfield for a small fee with a sell-on clause. The 20 year old joined Dale on loan two weeks ago, playing three times. Macclesfield admit they may lose midfielder John Rooney, brother of Wayne, after a string of Premier League scouts watched the teenager over the last two weeks. Bournemouth defender Jason Pearce is being linked with a move to Plymouth.

Cheltenham have signed Bristol City midfielder Frankie Artus on a months loan after a similar spell last season, and signed Kosovo born defender Ajet Shehu on non-contract terms. Shehu was previously with Spurs' Academy. Crawley boss Steve Evans faces having a suspended ten game ban imposed after he was sent from the dugout on Saturday during their 4-1 loss to Gateshead. He received a 12 games ban, with a further 10 suspended, for last season's antics.

Rotherham's pitch is to be partially returfed in the wake of the U2 concert at the Don Valley stadium. Notts County have failed to persuade Pavel Nedved out of retirement after talks, but will be paying £250,000 for Derby full back Jordan Stewart.
