Defender Josh Emmanuel left Ipswich Town for Bolton before this evening’s 5pm transfer deadline.

Blues boss Paul Lambert says he is happy with his squad, following the recent additions of Kane Vincent-Young, Anthony Goergiou and Will Keane, but has not ruled out further signings.

What is more likely is some fringe players heading for the exit door given the first team squad now contains 32 players. The likes of Josh Emmanuel, Corrie Ndaba and Jordan Roberts may well be available having failed to make matchday squad of late.

Lambert has made nine summer signings so far in the form of Tomas Holy (Gillingham, free), Will Norris (Wolves, loan), Adam Przybek (West Brom, free), Vincent-Young (Colchester, £500k), James Wilson (free agent), Georgiou (Tottenham, loan), Luke Garbutt (Everton, loan), Keane (free agent) and James Norwood (Tranmere, free).
