Derby County are ready to sell Matej Vydra this summer amid interest from Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion, according to The Mirror’s Live Transfer Blog [Tuesday 12th June, 20:16].
New Derby manager Frank Lampard is ready to cash in on Vydra to fund moves for new players this summer.
Owner Mel Morris is keen to keep a close eye on finances during the close season and Derby are considering selling Vydra to generate funds.
The Czech Republic international was one of their star players last season, scoring 21 league goals to earn the golden boot in the Championship.
Leeds are eyeing the 26-year-old to solve their problems up front while the Baggies might be without Salomon Rondon and Jay Rodriguez heading into next season.
Defender Curtis Davies could also be heading to the exit door for £2.5m but Lampard wants to keep him as captain next year amid interest from Stoke City.
Vydra’s goals have been important for Derby and helped lift them into the play-offs, so any money raised will need to be reinvested in the squad.
Leeds would seriously benefit from having the prolific forward in their ranks as he is a proven goal scorer at the right age to thrive in the Premier League.
And West Brom would also be doing some shrewd business, even though he failed during his last stint at The Hawthorns.
