Rowett hints 25-year-old could still leave Derby County this summer



Gary Rowett has hinted that Andreas Weimann could still be leaving Derby County in the coming months, despite a proposed move to Wolverhampton Wanderers falling through earlier this summer, reports the Derby Telegraph.

After enduring a difficult start to the 2016/17 season at the Pride Park Stadium, and featuring just 12 times during the first-half of the season, Weimann eventually moved to Molineux on-loan during the January transfer window.

Weimann featured regularly in the Wolves side towards the end of last season, and having linked up with his former Aston Villa manager, Paul Lambert, the 25-year old showed flashes of the form that made him an excellent prospect in the Premier League during the early days of his career.

However, as Wolves and Lambert parted company earlier in the summer, a proposed permanent transfer for Weimann fell through, leaving the Austrian’s future unclear.

Rowett has now given his clearest indication that Derby will still look to move Weimann away from the Pride Park Stadium this summer, saying: “Alongside many other players, what I will say with Andi is if at some point somebody else comes in and offers a deal and we feel we can do something different, we are open-minded about all of the players although that doesn’t mean to say we don’t want those players.”

Weimann arrived at Derby from Villa ahead of the 2015/16 campaign, and still has two-years remaining on the four-year contract he signed with the Rams that summer.

During his time with Derby, Weimann has made just 13 league starts and has been limited to substitute appearances.
