    None of our players there unfortunately. They will both know all about Tammy Abraham so it would appear they are looking at others out there.........

    I hear we are signing Tom Bayliss from Coventry City for something like £1.75m....think we are waiting for him to come back from holiday. Played in the play off semis and final..only 19 and a workaholic midfielder...

    We could certainly do with a midfielder willing to put in the hard yards to enable our more aged players to play with more freedom.

    Agreed. We rarely find out the actual figure Derby but & sell players for even after the deal has been completed so I doubt the press have any better idea. I do hope it's £15 million minimum though otherwise we might as well keep him.

    Why sell Vydra? We are within FFP, and have off loaded Bent,Baird and Shackell off the wage bill.
    WE will be moving some other players out, and presumably getting most in on loan.
    Absolutely no need to sell Vydra..unless Frank doesn't fancy him....which is fair enough.
    Personally, id think Nugent and Jerome should be out first of the strikers he has, and hope he utilises Coldplay.
    There are many,many decisions to be had on our squad, good luck to the man...

    My memory must be failing me....... it doesn't run out this month, apparently. I just checked the retained list on the DCFC OS............. look at the name in bold

    First-team squad players under contract beyond the summer of 2018: Scott Carson, Craig Forsyth, Richard Keogh, Ikechi Anya, Tom Lawrence, Andre Wisdom, Bradley Johnson, Alex Pearce, Andreas Weimann, Mason Bennett, Kelle Roos, Matej Vydra, Max Lowe, Jamie Hanson, David Nugent, Marcus Olsson, Cameron Jerome, Curtis Davies, George Thorne, Jonathan Mitchell, Joe Ledley, Tom Huddlestone, Luke Thomas, Jayden Bogle, Chris Martin, Craig Bryson, Jacob Butterfield, Nick Blackman.

    Interesting to see Lowe and Bogle on that list of First-team squad players

    We are going to find it hard to move on the likes of Martin, Bryson, Butterfield and Blackman without financial loss. Bryson possibly still interesting Cardiff but the others?

    Buy one get one free might be a good idea.

    Blackman 2 years left on his contract. He will have a value of £2M in the accounts allowing for depreciation. I have no idea whether that will have been further diminshed by any loan fee we may have had from Tel Aviv. Let him go for half of that and hopefully not have to pay part of his wages going forward for the next 2 seasons.....

    Martin. With him, he is on silly money so that may well be an issue for any club wanting to buy him. We got him on afree so any fee will all be in the positive in an accounting sense.

    Butterfield. Take the money and run will be every fan's first thought. Accept any fee, however low, and pay up to half his wages just to get rid. On the other hand, he did play well for Huddersfield. He also played well when he first came to us. I have no idea what happened to that player but he hasn't been seen for 2 years now. Just looked at his wiki page. It says just 18 appearances for Wendy last season...... Is it possible that Frank can rekindle the flame in Jacob? Despite some of the stupid stuff he came out with when he first went to Wendy, the Butters of old would be a gain..... how much of a gamble would you take? He will be on the books at around £1.5M now.

    Bryson has been with us 6 years so his book value will be zero, as with Martin. Any fee is a positive thing in an accounting sense. If they match his wages as well even better.

    With all 4, we should be able to at least match, and maybe better their book value in transfer fees. That would be offset by probably having to come to some agreement with them on picking up any shortfall in their new wage structure at their new club.

    My figures won't be spot on but they aren't far from the truth. Martin and Bryson's book value will be zero. Martin cost nowt, Bryson's will have devalued to zero since 2012. The other 2 have 1 and 2 years left......

    Any hit will be on wages and will partly or even wholly be offset against any fees received.

    Would there even be a finacial loss?

    Might we even come out of the four deals in profit?

    Only time will tell.

    'Amster I hope you are right but Blackman - cant imagine anyone but Tel Aviv wanting him nor anyone paying the daft wages (anything above zero for him is daft wages)

    Martin has been pretty dog shite for 2 years now and his attitude at Fulham will have put people off I imagine. Lets hope he can re-boot and be back to the 20+ scorer for us

    Butterfield - cant see the wendies snapping our hands off and again - been smelly brown stuff in the park for ages - and no-doubt on big money too

    Bryson - proven championship quality - was gutted when he went - hope a) he has form and b) Lampard wants a box to box midfielder - but one of them that we could make a profit on.

    Best bet is we find some suckers to take Butterscotch, Blackman and Martin on loan to pay as much of a % of their wages as possible as their NBV winds down to zero.

    Or pay Daniel Levy a commission to help us get shot at maximum value :-)

    Interesting times ahead - as ever at the Rams - but I am remaining positive in the next instalment of our rolling three year plan

    I know Lampard has his WC commitment coming up.
    But has there actually been a sighting of him at PP or MF since his introduction ?

    Jay DaSilva is the latest Chelsea youngster tipped to join Derby, on the BBC Sport website (quoted from the Mirror so probably untrue).
