Des loan move falls through

Last updated : 28 March 2003 By Michael Morris
Grimsby tried to get Des on a short term contract but only a loan move was allowed. They then tried to make John Oster a permanent signing from Sunderland to free up a loan space but Oster refused to make a permanent move.

So no City players were involved in transfer deadline day. It was a quite day for our promotion rivals as well. Bristol City tried to sign former Premiership striker Julian Joachim but he turned them down, Crewe, Wigan and Oldham made no signings either.
