Derby County winger Florian Jozefzoon has been given permission to leave the club on loan, according to a report by Football Insider.
The 28-year-old joined Derby from Brentford in 2018 and scored three goals in 35 appearances for the club last season, as the Rams reached the play-off final under Frank Lampard.
However, the wideman has struggled to make an impact for Derby since Phillip Cocu took charge of the club in the summer. He’s made ten Championship appearances this season, but is yet to score a single goal.
The Dutchman has been left out of the matchday squad on several occasions this season. He’s made just one start for the Derby since the beginning of October and hasn’t featured for the Rams at all since early December.
According to Football Insider, Cocu is now prepared to let Jozefzoon leave Pride Park on loan this month in order to make space for some potential new signings and a number of Championship clubs are believed to be interested in the wideman.
QUIZ: Can you name these 18 ex-Derby County players?
Jozefzoon is a good player, but his performances for Derby so far this season have been very underwhelming and he’s really struggled to make an impact for the Rams since Cocu took charge of the club.
He hasn’t featured for the club since the start of December and it’s very difficult to see things changing anytime soon. With this in mind, it would make sense for him to leave Derby, to allow him to experience regular game time once again.
He’s a decent player and has got plenty of experience in the Championship, so he should be able to get his season back on track at another club.
