Gary Hooper has completed his £2.4million transfer to Celtic, earning Southend £445,000 in the process. Morecambe are to sign Wrexham defender Andy Fleming on a two year deal. The fee is likely to go to a tribunal for the England C man. The Shrimps have also signed Northampton defender Chris McCready, also on a two year deal, after he was transfer listed by the Cobblers.
Shrewsbury have named recent signing Ian Sharps as their captain for the coming season. Accrington have agreed deals with striker Rory Boulding and full back Jon Bateson. The one year contract will be completed when their embargo is lifted. Wycombe have named veteran Gareth Ainsworth as their new skipper, while their England u19 man Matt Phillips is generating interest from several Championship clubs. The Chairboys have also agreed a fee with Wealdstone for former Bulls full back Marvin McCoy.
Former Bulls loanee Tony Capaldi is reported to be missing from Plymouth's training this week, but the player and club are still in talks. He is to play in a trial match with Crystal Palace. Defenders Lee Molyneux and Stephane Kubar have joined the Pilgrims on trial and may play at Edgar Street. Anthony Elding is expected to sign for Rochdale in the next few days. He is returning to England from Hungarian football after his family failed to settle.
