Nicolas Anelka is free to resume his career in England after completing an education course following his quenelle gesture.
St Mirren have signed winger James Dayton from Oldham on loan until the end of the season.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has confirmed that Sammy Ameobi is close to agreeing a loan move to local rivals Middlesbrough.
Boro's floundering Championship promotion push has seen them win just once since the turn of the year - and now Tony Mowbray is looking for loan reinforcements.
Ameobi has emerged a target for Boro and Pardew looks ready to sanction the deal.
"We are going to talk to Middlesbrough," said Pardew.
"I would like to help them out if they want him and hopefully we can conclude that."
