Derby County have accepted a £750k bid from Millwall for the service of George Evans.
Last week, the Rams knocked back a reported £500k bid from their Championship rivals for the service of the versatile midfielder, although it was teased that further bids would be on the way from Millwall between now and Monday’s deadline.
Now, it seems that Evans will eventually complete a move away from Derby this month, with Wayne Rooney confirming that a bid had been accepted for the service of the 26-year-old.
Sibley? Jozwiak? – Can you name which Derby County player scored each these 15 goals this season?
It’s been revealed by a report in the Derby Telegraph that the fee involved for the transfer is only a small hike up from the initial £500k bid, with Millwall set to pay Derby £750k for the service of Evans.
Evans has been with Derby since moving to Pride Park from Reading in the summer of 2018.
In total, he’s made 42 appearances for the club and played under Frank Lampard, Phillip Cocu and, of course, Rooney.
The 26-year-old is a midfielder player, but he’s also got capabilities to play in the defence and has done on a number of occasions for the Rams over his two-and-a-half years with the club.
His last appearance under Rooney came in the 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers on January 23rd.
Evans is actually a really good signing for Millwall.
Gary Rowett does have a number of options available to him in the midfield, but Evans’ versatility and ability to play in a three-man defence sees him as a perfect fit for the Lions.
They like that sort of flexibility in a player and it’s going to be a shrewd move.
The fee in question is quite small for a player like Evans, who could prove to be such a useful addition to the squad.
