While Premier League clubs have to wait for another 23 days before the transfer window officially opens, Championship clubs have been able to make deals since the last day of the domestic season.
Clubs are not waiting around and are already signing and selling players. Here's a round-up of today's action...
Leeds United: Leeds United have made an improved offer to defender Sol Bamba as they try to convince the 30-year-old to return to Elland Road. HITC Sport reported last month that Bamba rejected Leeds' initial offer of a contract to turn his loan move from Palermo into a permanent deal.
They're also set to do battle with Southampton over the signing of Sampdoria striker Stefano Okaka.
Italian news outlet SampNews24 report Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero is in the UK and could hold talks with Leeds owner Massimo Cellino this week. The striker is said to be available for around £6m.
Cardiff City: Walesonline are reporting Cardiff striker Kenwyne Jones could be set for a move to Australia with Western Sydney Wanderers.
The Bluebirds' top scorer with 14 Championship goals spent the end of last season at Bournemouth on loan and, as one of the club's top earners, is expected to leave the Bluebirds this summer.
Bolton Wanderers: It appears Bolton Wanderers have fought off competition from other Championship clubs to sign striker Gary Madine, according to HITC Sport.
Birmingham City and Leeds United are just two names linked with the former Coventry man but it is thought that Madine would favour a move to Neil Lennon’s team.
The 24-year-old was released by Sheffield Wednesday this summer and is available on a free transfer.
Derby County: The Derby Telegraph report Derby are still keen on bringing Hull's Tom Ince to the club on a permanent basis.
The 23-year-old finished the season on loan at the iPro Stadium and impressed with 11 goals in 18 games.
Hull manager Steve Bruce has indicated he wants Ince to be part of his plans as he bids to take Hull back to the Premier League at the first time of asking but Derby look to be willing to activate a buy-out clause which was a part of last season's loan deal.
Birmingham City: The Birmingham Mail are reporting free agent Wes Foderingham is keen on a move to the Blues.
“It [Birmingham] would be a club I would consider - it’s a club on the up, a great young manager, a massive club, a massive fan base, so it would be a club I would consider."
Fulham: The Londoners are keen on Sheffield Wednesday defender Tom Lees and have had a bid of £1.2m rejected according to The Daily Mail.
Kit Symons has been handed a transfer budget of around £10m as he attempts to build a side capable of challenging for promotion following last season's disappointing 17th place finish.
It seems unlikely that Lees will be part of that squad as Wednesday have spurned Fulham's advances and offered Lees a new deal.
MK Dons: Oxford United are still hopeful of bringing MK Dons defender George Baldock back to the club according to the Witney Gazette.
22-year-old Baldock impressed while on loan at the club last season and has just 12 months left on his contract with the Championship outfit
Oxford head coach Michael Appleton said: “There’s definite interest, of course there is. He’s a fantastic player and someone we’d love to have here. But the reality is he’s an MK Dons player and they’ve just gone up into the Championship."
