Stoor & Livermore will be off after loan deals expire


Recommended Posts

DERBY County will not follow up their interest in Fredrik Stoor and Jake Livermore after their loans expire.

Stoor's three-month stay with the Rams from Fulham ends after the home game against Blackpool on Boxing Day.

Livermore arrived in August from Tottenham Hotpsur and his loan is up after the clash with Newcastle United at St James' Park on Monday.

Both players will return to their clubs.

"They will go back," said manager Nigel Clough. "We will have a chat with them. I think they both know and we will just confirm it with them. Then we will be looking for fresh options."

An ankle injury forced Stoor to miss the home defeat by Doncaster Rovers at the weekend.

The Swedish international defender had an injection in the ankle and he could be available to face Blackpool.

"I think Freddie is looking for a permanent move away from Fulham in January and his wages will be out of our bracket," said Clough.

"We will look to bring somebody in. It will be another loan, probably, to provide competition at right-back."

Stoor has made 11 appearances for Derby, 10 of them starts, and played in the victories over Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry City, Reading and Watford.

Paul Connolly returned to right-back against Doncaster in Stoor's absnece.

Eleven of Livermore's appearances have been starts but the 19-year-old midfielder has not featured in the last four matches.

His chances have been limited in recent weeks because he is behind skipper Robbie Savage, Stephen Pearson, Paul Green and Lee Hendrie in the pecking order for places in midfield.

"Jake has done OK for us and I think the experience he has had will benefit him," said Clough.

"He has played 15 games, more than he played in the whole of last season. He is a young lad and it is good for him to get out and play first team football."

Clough will look to the loan market again once the January transfer window opens.

"We'll ask a few of the Premier League big boys about their young players and give them the opportunity to play first-team football," said Clough.

Derby also have Paul Dickov and DJ Campbell on loan from Leicester City until January 1 and are keen to extend the stay of both players.

"We are going to speak to Leicester and see what their plans are with them," said Clough.
