Derby County right-back Paul Connolly has emerged as a Town target on what promises to be a busy final day of the transfer window at Portman Road. The Blues are understood to have made an offer to the Rams for the 25-year-old, but have not yet met their valuation.

Liverpool-born Connolly came through Plymouth’s youth system, making his senior debut on the final day of the 2000/01 season.

After 171 starts, six sub appearances, one goal and a short loan spell with non-league Bideford, the 6ft tall defender moved on to Derby on a free transfer in May 2008.

Connolly was subsequently named captain at Pride Park, but this season Robbie Savage has take over the armband. Despite this, the full-back has featured in all six of Derby’s games this season and overall has made 54 starts and one sub appearance, scoring once.

A right-back has appeared to be amongst Roy Keane’s targets all summer with Tottenham’s Chris Gunter, who has since joined Nottingham Forest, and Manchester United’s Danny Simpson, now on loan at Newcastle, having been linked earlier in the close season.

I would sell him! Watching him the first few games, he always looks lost, like he hasn;t got a clue what he is doing!! However with no cover, can;tsee it happenin! Although i suppose Leacock could do a job at right back for a while!
