The Rams are yet to make any movements this month, but will be hoping that developments off the pitch can resolve that soon.
Here, we take a look at the latest transfer rumours and gossip surrounding the Rams…
Mike te Wierik
Te Wierik – who joined in the summer after penning a pre-contract deal – has interest from three Dutch clubs in him.
Fortuna Sittard, FC Groningen and Heracles Almelo are all said to be interested in the defender, as per VL, who has endured a torrid time at Pride Park this term.
He looks set to leave this month, having made only six appearances for Derby.
A return to Groningen could be on the cards for the centre-half, who picked up a red card against Preston North End in the Carabao Cup earlier this season.
