Derby County made two signings on deadline day, doubling the number of new signings they have brought in this summer.
Watford winger Ikechi Anya arrived for an undisclosed fee, before goalkeeper Chris Weale arrived at the iPro Stadium following Lee Grant’s departure. Striker Chris Martin also left Derby to join Fulham on loan.
These signings join frontmen James Wilson, who has arrived on loan from Manchester United, and Matej Vydra, who was signed for £8 million from Watford.
Derby County haven’t had a very good start to the 2016/17 season, with new boss Nigel Pearson only seeing his side win one game in the league. The Rams also embarrassingly lost away games to Barnsley and Burton Albion, where they were strong favourites to win.
Derby fans have not seen a goal at the iPro Stadium in the league this season, with both home games ending in goalless draws.
Over the summer, Pearson’s side were linked with many players, but in the end only signed four.
