Derby County head into the final week of the January transfer window having featured very little in the market compared to some of their Championship rivals.

The Rams have been linked with a host of players. However, Phillip Cocu’s side go into the final week having yet to bring in a much-needed new player or two.

As for departures, loanee Jamie Paterson returned to Bristol City. Max Hunt joined Carlisle United permanently. And, Bristol Rovers signed Jayden Mitchell-Lawson on loan.

Here we look at three more players who could leave before the window shuts:

Mason Bennett:

Mason Bennett has been linked with a move to Millwall. Lions boss Gary Rowett told the South London Press that the Derby attacker is on his list of targets.

Bennett came through the Derby academy. He has made over 80 appearances for the first team. However, injuries have limited his progression as a player.

The 23-year-old enjoyed his best season at Pride Park last year. He scored three goals and posted four assists in 33 Championship appearances.

Bennett, however, is out of contract this summer. His involvement in the drink-driving incident damaged his reputation and a fresh start elsewhere could be best for all.

Florian Jozefzoon:

The Dutch winger joined Derby from Brentford for £2.75 million back in 2018.

Jozefzoon is often cited as the quickest and most skilful player at the club. However, on the pitch, he just hasn’t got going and is now out of the first team picture altogether.

The 28-year-old has made just six league starts this term. He has been involved for just nine minutes of Championship action since mid-October.

The Telegraph claim Stoke City are keen on him. Dutch side Vitesse are also monitoring him. Derby are seemingly happy for him to go if the deal is right.

Jayden Bogle:

Derby right-back Jayden Bogle is among the club’s most prized assets.

The 19-year-old broke through last season. He posted an impressive two goals and eight assists in his debut campaign which alerted several top-flight clubs.

Brighton and Hove Albion have been linked before. Ahead of this month, West Ham United, Burnley and Crystal Palace were all linked with the £7 million-rated talent (Telegraph).

Of the teams linked, Palace have yet to properly replace England U21 international Aaron Wan-Bissaka who joined Manchester United for £50 million last summer.

It’s unlikely Derby will want to entertain offers for Bogle. However, if the Rams receive an eight-figure fee for him ahead of the deadline, they may be tempted to cash in.
