Derby County are reportedly open to the idea of selling Jack Marriott, after the striker joined Sheffield Wednesday on loan on Deadline Day.
Marriott has failed to make an impression under Phillip Cocu, with the forward starting only 10 times in the Sky Bet Championship last term.
The 26-year-old made six appearances for Derby across all competitions this season, scoring one goal before joining Wednesday on loan on Deadline Day.
Quiz: Do Nottingham Forest and Derby County have these 10 things in common?
Marriott will spent the rest of the season on loan at Hillsborough, however Derby do have the option to recall him in January if they wish to.
Derby also activated the option to extend Marriott’s contract at Pride Park until 2022 before letting him join Wednesday, meaning that he is under contract for another year-and-a-half.
According to The Athletic, though, Derby are open to selling Marriott for the right price, with the club set to revive interest in Serdar Dursun in 2021.
Derby have been smart in extending Marriott’s contract and exercising their option.
If they didn’t do that, then Marriott would have been out of contract at the end of the season, meaning that they could have lost the player for potentially nothing at the end of this campaign.
Extending his deal, though, enhances their chances of receiving a fee for the player if anyone wishes to sign him, which would be financially beneficial for the Rams.
