Derby County’s season this year was one they will be keen to forget after suffering relegation and being affected by off the pitch matters.
In the end, the Rams finished 23rd in the league with 34 points although looking at their goal difference of -8 compared to -40 and -44 of the other relegation sides shows that they weren’t far off it in terms of football but the points deduction put them in a tough position.
However, things finally seem to be repairing themselves at Pride Park with the takeover nearly there and Wayne Rooney looking likely to stay out as manager.
However, the new owners and the Derby boss will have a big job on their hands this season as they look to rebuild the side and put themselves in a position to compete next season.
With that in mind, here we take a look at eight transfer scenarios that might play out at Derby County now the season has come to an end.
