Derby County

3 players Derby County could cash in on this summer to bump up their transfer budget



Since taking over from Frank Lampard last summer, Phillip Cocu has gradually rebuilt Derby County and results have developed.

The Dutch coach arrived shortly after Lampard departed the club for the managerial post at Chelsea, leaving behind a squad that had just lost the play-off final to Aston Villa.

The likes of Mason Mount and Harry Wilson departed the club due to the expiration of their loan deals, leaving quite a whole in the squad, but Cocu has slowly started to stamp his own mark on the Rams.

Wayne Rooney’s arrival in January helped the club secure a good run of form and Cocu will be hoping to push on when football returns.

With a promotion not impossible, but more unlikely, we have looked into THREE players we feel the former PSV Eindhoven man could sell this summer to bring in some extra transfer funds.

Jack Marriott

25-year-old striker Marriott has simply not delivered the goals Derby fans would have expected him to do so.

Two goals and three assists in 29 appearances has seen the former Milwall man make little impact and for that reason, Cocu may deem him surplus to requirements this summer.

Valued by Transfermarkt at just over £2m, Marriott would be a good sale to bring in funds.

Scott Malone

29-year-old left back Malone has featured 16 times this season for Cocu, but it remains to be seen if he is the preferred option on the left hand side of defence.

A solid option for any Championship side, Cocu may opt to sell the Englishman on and rely further on youngster Max Lowe.

Valued just under £2m, Malone could offer a little more than that figure in the summer transfer window.

Florian Jozefzoon

Rewind one year ago and Dutch winger Jozefzoon was featuring in that play-off final against Aston Villa, but he has since struggled to find regular football for the Rams.

Featuring just 11 times this season in the Championship, the 29-year-old has managed just one assist, making him a player Cocu could look to sell this summer.

Valued at just over £1m by Transfermarkt, Cocu will be lucky to gain a transfer fee above that valuation, given the winger is unlikely to enhance his reputation when football returns.
