According to the Watford Observer, former Derby County target Isaac Success wants to remain at the club despite speculation linking him with a move away.

Success joined Watford from Granada for a £12.5 million fee in 2016.

Success hadn’t played a single minute of Championship football prior to the January transfer window earlier this year, with his situation alerting several clubs.

According to Adam Leventhal of the Athletic, Derby were interested.

The Rams were keen to bolster their striker department and aside from bringing in Lee Gregory from Stoke City, they attempted to add Success on a loan deal.

A move to Pride Park, however, failed to materialise.

Watford went on to win promotion. Success made just three starts in the league, scoring once.

But the latest reports from the Watford Observer say the 25-year-old has no intentions of leaving Vicarage Road amid the latest speculation over his future at the club.

Success wants to fight for his place at the Premier League club.

Derby, meanwhile, can seemingly cross off another potential target from their list.

Manager Wayne Rooney will be desperate to add firepower this summer. Martyn Waghorn’s contract is expiring, while Colin Kazim-Richards turns 35 in August.

The EFL charges and potential takeover delays, however, may limit Derby financially.
