Every Championship club's marquee signing in the January transfer window

Here - we offer our verdict on who we think is the every second tier club's marquee signing. Click and scroll through the pages - and let us know what you think of our suggestions.

Appeared in the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City. Carroll, signed on loan, will add some much needed competition in Villas central midfield department.
Was reportedly eyed by Premier League Newcastle United in the summer for 1m before joining the Blues from Djurgardens IF on a free transfers. Scored nine goals in Sweden last season.
Initially joining on loan from Nottingham Forest last summer, the 19-year-old completed a permanent switch to Ewood Park in January. Still awaiting his first Rovers goal, however boss Tony Mowbray holds him in high regard.
The goalkeeper signed on a free transfers from Norwich City and could prove vital in Boltons fight against relegation as they looked to stop conceding goals. 45 have been shipped so far.
The Danish forward proved to be Brentfords only winter signing, and is tipped as one for the future with his development expected to start in the Bees B team.
The midfielder has already made his mark by scoring in the Robins 2-1 win over Bolton on January 12. He was recalled by Chelsea after Blackburn dropped him to the bench in the first half of the season.
It would have been easy to go with Ashley Cole for this one but King was vital in Leicesters promotion from the Championship in 2014.
Had been a Premier League regular on the Cherries left wing with 67 appearances in the last three seasons, however new signings meant Pugh was frozen out by Eddie Howe this season.
Ipswich need goals and need them fast if they are to somehow avoid relegation to League One. While Quaner hasnt been the most prolific striker, he will certainly give The Tractor Boys a different outlet.
This should have been Daniel James but his deadline day move to Leeds fell through at the 11th hour. That said, its not often you sign a goalkeeper from Real Madrid
Mikel had a trophy-laden career at Chelsea - lifting nine trophies in 11 years. Still only 31-years-old, the Nigerian is relishing a second spell in England after leaving Chinese Super League side Tianjin TEDA.
Became popular with the Millwall fans after enduring a successful loan spell at The Den in the second half of last season. Hell be looking to build on his previous record of five assists and three goals.

Having competed in Germanys second tier with Dynamo Dresden, Heise joins Norwich to bolster the promotion hopefuls' defence. He is a recognised left-back.
Pele was very hard to overlook just purely because of his name! But in Bonatini, Forest have signed a striker who is fresh from lifting the Championship title with Wolves.
Arriving for a seven-figure fee, the midfielder has already bagged himself two goals at his new club in wins over QPR and Stoke City.
While plenty of faces left Loftus Road last month, Rs boss Steve McClaren was unable to source any replacements.
Scored 19 goals across two Championship seasons for Norwich and has already netted his first Royals goal. Lets hope he isnt sidelined for too long after Tyrone Mings stamped - intentionally or not - on his head at the weekend.
The midfielder swapped League Two Northampton Town in favour of making the step up to the Championship. He was Rotherhams one and only January signing.
He was prolific for Brentford and has endured a hard time at Aston Villa. Hell no doubt be relishing the chance to regain top form and help aid the Blades promotion push.
Steve Bruces first proper day in the Wednesday job was deadline day, and despite being under a transfer embargo, managed to complete a Newcastle double swoop. Two players with big points to prove after being frozen out by Rafa Benitez.
Joined for a reported 9m with Peter Crouch heading in the other direction to Burnley. His record in helping the Clarets out of the Championship on two occasions speaks for itself. Very impressive.
No new signings for the Swans but plenty of outgoings. Their transfer window brought anger from fans and long-serving chairman Huw Jenkins stepped down over the weekend.
Darren Moore acquired three new signings on deadline day. While Jacob Murphy and Jefferson Montero are credible candidates, Johansen is the man with a promotion on his CV.
Wigan are the Championships second lowest scorers and let Will Grigg move to Sunderland on Thursday. Clarke fired an impressive 19 goals last term for the Blades but made way with Hogans arrival at Bramall Lane.
