Derby County are reportedly willing to sell Jack Marriott in the January transfer window, but only for a ‘decent offer’ according to The Athletic.
The forward has found game time hard to come by with the Rams, and could be heading for the exit door in the near future it seems.
Marriott was loaned out to Sheffield Wednesday in the summer transfer window, but returned to Derby after an injury cut-short his spell with the Owls.
He made seven appearances for Sheffield Wednesday in total, as they continued to struggle for a positive run of results in the second-tier of English football.
But his future with Derby is seemingly ‘up in the air’ heading into the New Year, with the Rams being willing to move him on for the right price.
He signed for Derby back in 2018 after catching the eye with some strong performances for Peterborough United, where he netted 33 goals in 56 appearances in his time with the League One side.
This update comes after it was also reported by The Athletic that Derby were set to reignite their interest in signing Serdar Dursun.
The Darmstadt 98 forward has scored ten goals in 15 appearances this season, and his impressive showings evidently haven’t gone unnoticed.
Derby are set to return to action on Tuesday evening, when they take on Birmingham City, in what could be a tricky test for Wayne Rooney’s side.

I’m surprised by this.
I don’t think that Derby should have loaned Marriott out in the first place, let alone even consider selling him in the January transfer window.
The Rams aren’t exactly blessed with options in attack this season, and it’s good to see them targeting a new forward like Dursun in the New Year.
But that shouldn’t mean that Marriott is sold, and I think they’d be making a mistake in cashing-in on him, especially if they moved him on to another Championship club.
