Derby County winger Florian Jozefzoon is reportedly set to join Championship rivals Rotherham United before Friday’s deadline for domestic transfers.
The Rams are looking to make changes in the final third before the domestic window closes and it is understood that they’re now leading the race to sign Liverpool’s Harry Wilson on loan.
It appears Wilson’s potential arrival is unlikely to be the only bit of business done before Friday’s deadline as The Telegraph’s Mike McGrath has reported that Derby are set to offload Jozefzoon.
McGrath claims that the Dutch winger is set to join Rotherham.
The 29-year-old has fallen out of favour at Pride Park and doesn’t seem to be part of Phillip Cocu’s plans moving forward.
He made just 14 appearances in the Dutchman’s debut season with the Rams and has not featured once this term.
Following Chris Martin’s exit earlier this summer, the departure of Jozefzoon and arrival of Wilson would complete an attacking reshuffle that has also seen Jordon Ibe and Kamil Jozwiak join the club.
Do Nottingham Forest and Derby County have these 10 things in common?
This looks like fantastic news for Derby and will be made even better if they can land Wilson before Friday’s deadline.
Jozefzoon has seemed excess to requirements at the East Midlands club for some time now, so getting rid of him is definitely the right decision – whether that’s permanently or on loan.
The arrivals of Ibe and Jozwiak seemed to cement that he wasn’t likely to get much of a chance this season so moving to Rotherham makes a lot of sense for the winger.
The Millers will be hoping they can help him return to the sort of form that saw him score seven goals and provide eight assists for Brentford in the 2017/18 campaign.
