Deadline Day Summary – as we understand it

We don’t like to jump the gun here at Viva Rovers and get swept up in Deadline Day fever, but here is a brief summary of what has and has not happened over the course of the day as far as we understand it.

Brian Stock has not joined Reading and remains at Rovers.

Jason Shackell has signed a loan extension to remain at Rovers ’til January.

Former Hibs youngster Jack Wilson has signed for Rovers on a short term contract.

Paul Heffernan has not joined Leeds United contrary to reports in The Sun.

Contrary to reports and rumours Celtic’s Chris Killen has not joined Rovers

Slovakian striker Pavol Jurco has not been confirmed as a Rovers player

And lastly reports on BBC Radio Sheffield and S** Sports News suggest Billy Sharp has joined Rovers on loan until the end of the season.

We’ll bring you a more considered and detailed round-up of all these rumours and stories later this evening.
