Brentford winger gets Northern Ireland call-up

Northern Ireland have added Brentford winger Stuart Dallas to the preliminary squad for their opening Euro 2016 qualifier in Hungary. The 23-year-old, who earned his only previous cap against Wales in a much-depleted Carling Nations Cup side three years ago, has been rewarded for a strong start to the season with the Bees. Dallas has scored three times in seven appearances and will be part of a 27-man training group that manager Michael O'Neill will cut to 23 before leaving for Budapest and Sunday's Group F clash.

Borini has struggled to settle in Merseyside and was linked with a permanent move to Sunderland, where he spent last season on loan. However, that move fell through with Borini rumoured to be unwilling to move to the Stadium of Light and now it seems like Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has taken advantage of that to snap up a replacement for the recently-departed Loic Remy.

Where's Harry on deadline day?

One of the most famous figures of transfer deadline day appears to have gone AWOL. PA Sport, who've been reporting the transfer gossip all morning, are threatening to call the police if he's not seen in the next hour.

In an earlier update, they posted: "It's nearly 11 and we haven't seen Harry Redknapp yet. Where is he? Did Sandra forget to set the alarm?"
