Curtis Davies is set to become Derby’s first summer signing with Ravel Morrison and Andre Wisdom also set to be offered new deals, according to John Percy.
Wayne Rooney is yet to add to his squad this summer, with the club currently operating under a transfer embargo ahead of the new Championship season which kicks off in 18 days.
The EFL have now allowed Rooney to sign up to five players, but he is still restricted to free agents on 12-month deals or loan players on six-month deals.
22 things all Derby County fans simply must know – But do you?
According to John Percy, Curtis Davies and Andre Wisdom, whose contracts both ran out at the end of last season, are set to be offered new deals, with Davies set to become Derby’s first signing.
Ravel Morrison, who has been in training with the Rams as he looks to get his career back on track, is also set to be offered a new deal.
Well, it’s a start and it will be nice for Derby to finally start securing the services of some of their players.
It’s a tough situation for everyone, and if there was no progress on being able to sign new players, someone may have come in and pinched Morrison, Wisdom and Davies from their grasp.
But signing those players up, particularly Wisdom and Davies, gives them a bit of security going forward and gives them much-needed depth at the back.
