What to expect from the BBC on transfer deadline day

This season's January football transfer window reaches its climax on Tuesday when clubs across the divisions have a final opportunity to strengthen their squads.

BBC Sport will bring you extensive coverage of all the transfers across television, radio, online and the Red Button.

Clubs can make permanent and loan signings until the window closes at 2300 GMT on 31 January in England and the Scottish Premier League (midnight for Scottish Football League).

Here's how you can keep across deadline day on the BBC...

BBC Sport

We'll kick things off here on the BBC Sport website from 0800 GMT with a Sportsday Live transfer deadline day text commentary which will run through until 0100 GMT on Wednesday.

Our aim will be to bring you every bit of transfer news, including the latest rumours, breaking stories and confirmed deals from the BBC's team of reporters and correspondents across the UK.

We'll even document every transfer in our collated list of deals once they are confirmed by the clubs involved.

BBC Red Button

On the Red Button, you will be able to keep across the latest transfer news from midday with regular updates from Football Focus presenter Dan Walker with opinion from Martin Keown and BBC Sport journalists.

Tune into the BBC News Channel throughout the day for the latest sports news bulletins and at 1830 GMT there will be a deadline day transfer update programme from the Match of the Day studio.
