Partick Thistle midfielder Joe Cardle has been given a one year extension.

Also in Scotland Arbroath keeper Darren Jamieson has signed a new one year deal.

Max Kruse is leaving Werder Bremen on a free transfer in the summer.

Eintracht Frankfurt are spending over £5m on Serbian midfielder Filip Kostic from Hamburg.

West Bromwich Albion are releasing 5 players, for now at least, but have told them they could get offered new deals when a new manager is in place. For now Gareth Barry, James Morrison, Boaz Myhill, Tyrone Mears and Wes Hoolahan are leaving.

Harry Smith is signing for Northampton Town for an undisclosed fee from Macclesfield Town.

 

Swans Offer Potter New Deal

Despite having two years left on his current deal, manager Graham Potter has been offered a new contract with Swansea City as they look to stave off interest from Brighton & Hove Albion. The Swans are still struggling financially, but have been impressed with Potter's work despite losing whole swathes of players last summer, including all but one first team defender.

 

Pulis Leaves Boro

Middlesbrough manager Tony Pulis has left the club after failing to win a return to the Premier League. Chairman Steve Gibson said: "I'd like to thank Tony for his hard work and commitment over the past 18 months. He has been a joy to work with and a complete gentleman. Two years ago we invested heavily in the squad in terms of transfer fees and salaries in an attempt to regain our Premier League status. This happened before Tony's arrival. Over the past 18 months Tony has been proactive, not only in the ambition to win football matches and promotion to the Premier League, but also in addressing our financial position in order to comply and respect the Championship fair play criteria. He has ensured that the club is stable and strong for the future. He leaves us in excellent condition."
