Carroll's a decent keeper for this level it's his wages that are the problem and the fact he won't be happy sat on the bench. I'm guessing this Deeney kid will be signed to sit on the bench and if Ratty picks up a long term injury Price will be recalled. Not sure why we can't stick one of the youth team keepers we have on the bench unless they're all crap.

Derby are also close to offering former Burton Albion keeper Saul Deeney a contract.

“There is a chance Ross Atkins might be going out on loan and we hope to get Saul tied up by the end of the week,†said Clough.


Kidnap. A great way of making sure players stay at Derby County.

Deeney to sign this week

Saul Deeney is set to sign a deal with Derby County this week.

The former Burton Albion goalkeeper went on the Rams’ tour of the south-west and played 90 minutes in the goalless draw at Torquay United.

But Derby are still waiting to see if they can land 21-year-old keeper Frank Fielding from Blackburn Rovers.

“There is no change on Fielding but Saul we will get signed up this week,†said manager Nigel Clough.

“So if nothing happens, we will go with Stephen Bywater and Saul in the first game.â€Â

Clough said the chase for Crewe right-back John Brayford has not moved any further forward.

“We are still waiting on a couple of departures which may well trigger us,†he added.

“But we are also awaiting a decision on two loan players coming in, two young players on long-term loans. We hope to get at least one of those.â€Â

Sounds like we have to get rid of Carroll and Claude before we can get Brayford in.

Derby County have agreed a deal with goalkeeper Saul Deeney.

The 26-year-old played in last night’s final of the Bass Charity Vase against his former club, Burton Albion.

He was beaten once by Shaun Harrad’s penalty but it was enough to give the Brewers a deserved 1-0 victory at the Pirelli Stadium. Derby fielded three triallists.

They had a second look at Cambridge City right winger Scott Neilson who played in last week’s goalless draw against Torquay United.

Strikers Marc Grocott and Fraser McLaren also faced Burton.

Twenty-year-old Grocott has been with Stoke City and McLaren, also 20, is with Berwick Rangers.

He started at Livingston, joined Ayr United on loan and then signed for Gretna.
