Derby County plotting transfer swoop for £900k-rated star from play-off contenders

Published

Derby County are weighing up a summer move for Millwall striker Lee Gregory who is having an excellent campaign for the Lions this season, according to the print edition of the Daily Mirror (April 2nd, page 49).

The former Halifax Town striker has been integral for the Londoners this season and is a key reason behind their play-off push with ten goals to his name.

As well as that, Gregory has impressed with his work-rate, movement and relentless style. And, according to the print edition of the Daily Mirror (April 2nd, page 49), that has attracted the interest of Derby County.

The Rams got a much-needed three points yesterday after an awful winless run but there’s no doubting that Gary Rowett will be concerned by their performances in the past month.

A particular worry will be the lack of goals from the strikers, with Dave Nugent without a goal in 2018, whilst Cameron Jerome has just one in 12 since arriving in January.

Therefore, a move for a natural number nine to play in front of Matej Vydra will be a chief target for Rowett in the summer and it appears £900k-rated Gregory is high on his wanted list.

The Verdict

Should either Derby or Millwall win promotion then a deal may not happen but if they are in the Championship then it would be a great deal for the Rams.

Of course, Millwall will be desperate to hold onto the striker but interest is inevitable after the campaign Gregory has had.

At 29-years old, he may want to have one last big challenge elsewhere but the Lions are sure to demand a big fee for Gregory – and rightly so.
