EFL club confirm interest in signing Derby County forward before 5pm deadline



Carlisle United’s director of football David Holdsworth has confirmed that the club are interested in signing Derby County forward Jahmal Hector-Ingram.

The domestic transfer window closes at 5pm this afternoon, with clubs rushing around to try and get their last-minute deals done in the final hours of the window.

Whilst many clubs prefer to keep their transfer business quiet until an announcement is ready to be made, Carlisle United have revealed one of their transfer targets via their official Twitter account.

The League Two side have revealed that director of football, David Holdsworth, has confirmed that Derby’s Jahmal Hector-Ingram is of interest to the club.

The 21-year-old has made two first-team appearances for Derby, and came on as a late substitute in their recent 2-1 defeat to Luton Town at Kenilworth Road in the Sky Bet Championship.

Hector-Ingram has been a regular goalscorer for Derby in their Under-23 side, but he is now attracting interest from League Two side Carlisle.

The Cumbrians will look to complete a deal before this afternoon’s deadline, and it remains to be seen whether Derby let him leave Pride Park, presumably on loan.

The Verdict

It will be interesting to see whether Derby let Hector-Ingram leave or not.

They have just let Jack Marriott move on loan to Sheffield Wednesday, and despite recently bringing in Colin Kazim-Richards, they lack depth up top.

Hector-Ingram has been used on the bench this season and is clearly a part of Phillip Cocu’s plans, so it would be some coup to lure him to Carlisle.
