26-year-old issues message amid uncertainty over Derby County future

Published

on

Derby goalkeeper, Kelle Roos has spoken out regarding his future at the club, with his contract due to expire at the end of the season. 

Roos has been impressive since he replaced Scott Carson between the sticks, and will be hoping to retain his place in the starting XI, with the former England goalkeeper edging closer to a return to action.

The 26-year-old started for the Rams at the weekend, but was unable to stop his side from exiting the FA Cup at the hands of Premier League side, Brighton.

In an interview with Derbyshire Live, Roos insisted that he is remaining focused on playing regular football this season under Frank Lampard.

“There are quite a few players coming to the end of their contracts but, for me, it’s not really an issue.”

“I’m just grateful for the opportunity I have at the minute. The contract situation is not really important for me at the minute.

Roos also admitted that he is keen to retain his place in the starting XI, and isn’t being drawn into any contract talks at this moment in time.

“I’ll just keep my head down and I want to play games. That’s what I’ve always wanted.

“I am here, and I want to be here, obviously, otherwise I would have been out on loan, but I felt like this was my year to kick on, and get in this team.

“On the contract side of things, I’m not really interested in that at the minute.”

Roos will be keen to impress Frank Lampard for the remainder of this year’s campaign and is evidently hoping to extend his stay with the Rams.

The Verdict: 

He’s deserving of a new contract.

Roos has been hugely impressive since he replaced Scott Carson in goal, and I’m confident that he’ll keep the former England man out of the starting XI for the rest of the season.

Surely it’s a no brainer for Derby?
