Just seen it on the DET,


DERBY County goalkeeper Roy Carroll is on the verge of joining Danish club OB Odense.

Carroll, who joined Derby in January 2008, does not figure in first-team plans at Pride Park and has been told he can find another club.

The 31-year-old's contract with the Rams, which had two years to run, will be cancelled to allow him to move on as a free agent.

Derby County today confirmed that goalkeeper Roy Carroll has left the club by mutual agreement.

Roy had two years to run on his contract with the Rams, but an agreement was mutually agreed by both parties over the weekend with his opportunities limited at Pride Park.

Now a free agent, Roy is expected to complete a move to Danish Premier League side Odense.

Northern Ireland International Roy joined Derby back in January 2008 and made 38 appearances, the last of which came against his former club Manchester United in January 2009.

what was the problem with carroll?

He's technically better than any keeper on Derby's books, was it personal problems or what that spoiled things?

He's better than Bywater by a mile.

Clough it seems took an instant dislike to carroll for whaever reason.

When Clough came in he played both keepers and gave them a chance to impress, as I recall Carroll got the first chance to show what he can do but once Bywater came in that was it, he chose him for the number 1 shirt and the rest is history. As Carrolls wages were too high and he wasn't happy about being a number 2 he was moved on.

Personally I think both keepers are quality keepers at this level and theres not alot to choose from.
