Scottish Championship ins and outs - summer 2013

Hamilton Accies were the biggest winners from the Scottish Championship in this summer's transfer market - but for a player who hasn't been on their books since 2009.

A clause in the transfer that took James McCarthy to Wigan Athletic meant that the Douglas Park club were due an additional seven-figure sum once the 22-year-old Glasgow-born Republic of Ireland midfielder was sold on to Everton for £13m .

Falkirk and Morton were the other big cash winners from movements this summer, with the Bairns receiving £220,000 for the sale of last season's top scorer, Englishman Lyle Taylor, to Sheffield United and the Greenock outfit banking £52,000 from Scottish midfielder Michael Tidser's switch to Rotherham United.

Elsewhere, the increasing prevalence of short-term contracts being offered by cash-strapped Scottish clubs ensured another high turnover of players in and out of Scotland's second tier.
