Derby County made favourites to sign nine-goal striker



Bookmakers Bet Victor have made Derby County favourites to sign Exeter’s Ollie Watkins.

The youngster burst onto the scene last season when he bagged nine goals for the Devon based club in 22 matches, as the Grecians finished 14th in the table.

However Watkins made his debut for Paul Tisdale’s side in 201 in a 2-0 win at Hartlepool.

This season, Ollie Watkins has already surpassed his 2015/16 tally, scoring 10 times so far this campaign including a hat-trick in a 4-1 win over Newport County.

After a poor start, Exeter have turned their form around and now sit in ninth place just one point from the play-off places.

Steve McClaren’s Derby also sit just outside the play-offs in their respective league, having picked up their first league win of 2017 on Saturday with a win over fellow promotion hopefuls Reading.

The Rams need to go on another run of wins in order to climb into a top six, so the boss may want to add to his squad whilst he still has the chance.
