Transfer deadline day brings excitement and sorrow to fans, depending on who comes or who leaves.

In Sheffield, fans and players alike have to go through the ringer every year.

On this day in 2012, for instance, Nick Montgomery ended a 12-years stay at Sheffield United.

In 2015, Barry Bannan signed a one-year deal with Sheffield Wednesday.

It’s all part of the job and life of professional footballers.

Here they face one another when Bannan played for Leeds in 2011.
