Post window transfers

The winter transfer window closed on 1st February, but moves were still allowed in the case of players who are unemployed, or to replace a player with a long term injury. Changes of managers were also allowed to take place at any time during the season. We set out below the movements from the window closure up to the start of the summer transfer window, which opened at the end of the season. (31.05.16)
