According to Football Insider, Derby County are interested in making a late January move for Northampton Town goalkeeper David Cornell.
The 28-year-old featured for Northampton against the Rams on Friday night, as the League Two side forced a replay after holding Phillip Cocu’s side to a 0-0 draw at Sixfields.
Cornell has made 100 appearances for the Cobblers since joining from Oldham Athletic in 2016, and has kept nine clean sheets for Keith Curle’s side in League Two this term.
But the Welshman now faces an uncertain future at Sixfields with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season, leaving the door open for Derby to make a move.
Football Insider claim that Derby, Ipswich Town and Blackburn Rovers are interested in signing Cornell, who could be allowed to leave on the cheap this month, rather than on a free transfer come the summer.
Can you get 12 out of 12 on this Derby quiz?
Ben Hamer and Kelle Roos have both been battling it out for a place in Cocu’s team this season, with the latter moving down the pecking order and becoming second-choice after a patchy run of form.
Here, though, we take a look at Derby fans’ reactions to this latest transfer link…
Unfortunately we didn’t get to see anything of him on Friday #dcfc

Joe Hart available why are we not going for him if we are looking for a goal keeper?

This would be top trolling by Derby, if true.

You can see our scouting flaws here, play against them fail to create a shot on goal, consider signing the keeper cos he kept a clean sheet😂😂😂
