Bristol City's transfer deadline day consisted of two arrivals and two departures in a relatively satisfactory finish to the January transfer window.

Anis Mehmeti joined from Wycombe Wanderers for an undisclosed fee, in what the Chairboys say is the largest fee they have received. He joined on a three-and-a-half-year deal and will wear the 11 shirt, which was left vacant after Antoine Semenyo's sale to Bournemouth.

In between Harry Cornick's move to Ashton Gate, which was held up by the Hatters' search for a replacement and their Championship match with Cardiff City, it was announced that both Chris Martin and Timm Klose were both released from their contracts. Klose and Martin were out-of-contract in the summer but after a lack of interest, they have been allowed to leave their contracts early, and can now seek a new club without there being any complications.

Cornick was the last bit of transfer news on Tuesday evening, and he was confirmed for an undisclosed fee after being left out of Luton's 18-man squad in their win over Cardiff. The 27-year-old was thought to be a target for the summer but the Semenyo money has been reinvested back into the playing squad.

AFC Wimbledon played hard ball on Jack Currie, rejecting four offers from the Robins, which meant that Jay Dasilva's move to Coventry City did not take place. Both left-backs are out-of-contract in the summer and it could be explored at the end of the season, but for now both players will have to continue where they are. Jake O'Brien was another player linked with a move to Bristol City, and he would have added defensive cover but they could not persuade Crystal Palace to end his loan at Molenbeek in Belgium.
