With the transfer window now shut and squads finalised for the run-in, we took a look at some of the eye-catching deals in League One and what they might bring to their respective clubs.

Donovan Pines (Barnsley)

Barnsley added USA international Donovan Pines to their ranks earlier in the window, landing the centre-back on a free transfer following a four-year spell with DC United in the MLS.

The 25-year-old, who stands at 6’5, is yet to make his debut for the Tykes as he gets up to speed after the off-season in his home country.

He has represented the USA national team a couple of times at senior level, making his debut at the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Barnsley - who head to the Toughsheet Community Stadium this weekend - are currently fifth in the table as they aim to build on last season’s efforts, which ended in heartbreak against Sheffield Wednesday in the play-off final.

Conor Coventry (Charlton)

Charlton have been one of the busiest clubs in the window, bringing a number of faces through the door.

Perhaps the most interesting deal was Conor Coventry’s arrival from West Ham. A few heads were turned when the Addicks managed to land the highly-rated youngster on a permanent basis.

The midfielder had plenty of interest following a loan spell at Rotherham during the second half of last season. He also came off the bench in a Premier League fixture against Manchester City in August 2022.

Coventry has made three appearances for Charlton since the move was completed, most recently playing 75 minutes in the 3-2 defeat against Northampton.

Calvin Ramsay

We had to include a Bolton signing in the list! There has been plenty of excitement among supporters about what Calvin Ramsay will bring to the side following his loan switch from Anfield.

Ramsay headed to Merseyside in the summer of 2022 after impressing at Aberdeen. He was signed on loan by Preston in the summer but failed to make his mark following some bad injury luck.

The 20-year-old made his debut during the EFL Trophy defeat at Blackpool on Tuesday night and showed some good touches in the wing-back role.

Wanderers were trusted with Conor Bradley and Owen Beck last term, with the former now making an impact on Jurgen Klopp’s first-team squad.

Rhys Williams (Port Vale)

Another loanee from Liverpool, Port Vale landing 22-year-old Rhys Williams was quite the coup on paper.

The towering centre-back has featured for the Reds in both the Premier League and Champions League.

Williams spent last term on loan at Blackpool and also had a stint at Aberdeen earlier this season, failing to nail down a place in the side due to injuries.

Former Bolton man David Flitcroft, who is now Vale’s director of football, described the signing as “the perfect fit”.

Joe Taylor (Lincoln)

A player who was linked with Wanderers at one stage, Joe Taylor headed to Lincoln on loan for the remainder of the campaign.

The Luton forward caught the eye at Colchester during the first half of the season, scoring 12 goals in 27 games.

He reportedly had plenty of interest in League One, with Oxford and Wycombe among those said to be racing for his signature.

Taylor has made three appearances for the Imps and his pace looks like it could be an effective weapon in the coming weeks and months.

Myles Peart-Harris (Portsmouth)

Portsmouth have also been active in the market as they aim to bounce back from their recent slump and remain at the top of the table.

Myles Peart-Harris joined Pompey on loan from Brentford in search of regular game time as he continues his development.

The 21-year-old had a spell at Forest Green last season and has made five appearances off the bench for Brentford this term, including a 45-minute cameo against Wolves in the FA Cup.

John Mousinho’s are three points above Bolton at this stage, although the Whites have three games in hand.
