Bristol City's attempt to sign Bristol Rovers winger Mustapha Carayol has failed.

They were willing to meet Rovers' valuation of £300k plus a 25% sell-on clause but the player himself spurned the opportunity to discuss personal terms. Although he wishes to test himself in the Championship he doesn't wish to further harm his relationship with Rovers fans and move to their rivals, much like Rickie Lambert.

I'm a Saints fan and so far I have seen us 'linked' to Kyle Naughton, Jack Rodwell and Wilfred Zaha. I dont think any of these will come to us with the exception of Zaha though even he interests the big teams - if you believe what you read in the papers. I love the speculation as much as anyone and would love those players mentioned to be seen in red & white but lets not get carried away with ourselves, we're not in a position to build a 'futures England squad'.

Shrewsbury have agreed a deal to sign versatile forward Paul Parry.

The out-of-contract 31-year-old failed to agree new terms with npower League One rivals Preston and has opted to link up with Shrews, who will be aiming to preserve their third-tier status next season following promotion.

Parry, formerly of Hereford - where he played under Shrews boss Graham Turner - and Cardiff, spent three years with North End and made 47 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring four goals.

His move to the Greenhous Meadow completes a flurry of transfer activity between Shrewsbury and Preston this summer, with Shane Cansdell-Sherriff and Nicky Wroe both rejecting new deals with Shrews in May to make the move to Lancashire.

Crawley Manager Sean O'Driscoll has today completed their fourth summer signing with the capture of Republic of Ireland under-21 international Mark Connolly.

The 21-year-old defender has joined Reds on a two-year contract after he was released by Bolton Wanderers, but O'Driscoll said it is all fabrication that the club are interested in Izale McLeod when he played a lower standard of football last season. Crawley need a striker who is young, energetic and has a hunger for goals. Someone who will score over 30 goals next season and propel then club into the Championship. The aim is the build a squad capable of promotion and staying there. It is exciting times for Crawley and whats needed are better players than Division one or two standard.
