Coppell has called for the window to be scrapped in favour of the previous system, where deals could be struck throughout the season until the closing weeks.

"I don´t anticipate losing any of my players," Coppell told BBC Radio 5 Live. "But I´ve had a couple of what I´d call scurrilous inquiries. I cannot see the logic in a transfer window."
