Afterall, the Championship is the only division that finishes this weekend. League 1 and 2 goes on until the following weekend and the Premier League the weekend after that. I wouldn't expect us to announce the signing of a player that is still 'active' - particularly one embroiled in a relegation battle (e.g. Kenny or Hill)?
Just idle thoughts like
My money is on the lad from Pompey, I recon their financial situation adds to the urgency, and here we are wanting to act as early as we possibly can, for a change. Most clubs would presumably wait until after the final game to enter negotiations for a contracted player and if we were talking about a freebie, he wouldn't technically sign until mid summer + we'd presumably be less inclined to keep it quiet.
