According to Football Insider, Derby County are looking to move Florian Jozefzoon out of the club this month as Championship clubs consider a potential deal.

The 28-year-old joined Derby in the summer of 2018 for a £2.75 million fee.

Derby thought they were signing a top-quality winger. However, the Dutchman has struggled to get going at Pride Park and currently finds himself out of the first team picture.

Jozefzoon has made just ten appearances this season. He finds himself behind Jason Knight, Duane Holmes, Tom Lawrence and Morgan Whittaker in the picking order.

He hasn’t featured since early December in the 1-0 defeat to Millwall.

Football Insider claim Phillip Cocu has given Derby the green light to move him on. A loan deal is most likely, with fellow Championship clubs reportedly keen.

 

Jozefzoon still has over two years running on his contract. The Rams will struggle to make their money back on him unless he gains regular football elsewhere and impresses.

Derby, meanwhile, may look to replace him with another attacking player this month.

The priority at Pride Park is to sign a new central defender. But, with just 28 goals in 27 games, a new creative player is also high of areas to strengthen at the club.
