BRISTOL City man­ager Steve Cot­ter­ill has added his name to the queue of man­agers be­rat­ing the tim­ing of the trans­fer win­dow.

It of­fi­cially closes on Tues­day at 6pm, but many, in­clud­ing Ever­ton’s Roberto Martinez, have ques­tioned why it re­mains open af­ter the sea­son has started.

“It be­comes a non­sense, it re­ally does, drag­ging into the sea­son,” added Cot­ter­ill, who has missed out on sign­ing strik­ers Dwight Gayle and An­dre Gray this month.

“If you made it be­fore the sea­son started, ev­ery­body would know where they are.

“When you’re wait­ing for a player to po­ten­tially come and join you, it’s a night­mare sit­u­a­tion for any man­ager.”
