Crewe have signed the Nottingham Forest striker Steve Guinan on a month's loan. They have been looking for a striker since Dele Adebola joined Birmingham earlier this year. Guinan has made only two full appearances for Forest this season.

The Crewe midfielder Gareth Whalley has been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad for Wednesday's friendly against the Czech Republic in Olomouc. The 24-year-old qualifies for the Irish as his mother was born in Dublin.

Stockport County have signed Manchester United's 20-year-old defender Ronnie Wallwork on loan until the end of the season.
