Sheffield United have “pushed back” Derby County’s interest in Billy Sharp, it is alleged.

The Rams want to expand their roster in the final week of the transfer window.

Football Insider yesterday reported that a “recruiting source” had contacted the Premier League club to sign the 34-year-old.

Now the Football Insider says Derby’s approach has been rejected.


Loan movement

Chelsea defender Abdul Baba Rahman is on the verge of loaning out to Greek club PAOK, Football.London reports.

The 26-year-old has been closely linked to Derby County, Watford and Middlesbrough in the summer transfer window and again with the Rams last month.

A move to Derby was always unlikely at the time as they’d left Craig Forsyth and Lee Buchanan behind.

Former Derby County midfielder Benny Feilhaber has joined the MLS Sporting Kansas City technical team.

The 36-year-old US international retired last March after 15 seasons in MLS, Germany, Denmark and England.

He scored 56 goals in more than 400 professional games and played for Hamburg, AGF Aarhus, the New England Revolution, Los Angeles FC, Colorado Rapids, Sporting Kansas City and the Rams.

He joined Derby from Hamburg in the summer of 2007 before the Rams Premier League campaign.



Former Derby County winger David Martin has left non-league club Whitehawk.

It was the 35-year-old’s second appearance at the club of the Isthmian League South East Division.

He first came to them in 2015, playing 43 league games when the Hawks reached the play-offs for a place in the National League.

Martin returned to the Hawks in 2019 and was named a player / assistant coach earlier this season.



The time is running. There are five days left after today before the January transfer window closes at 11:00 p.m. on Monday.

So far, Derby County defenseman Mike te Wierik (to Groningen) and midfielder Duane Holmes (to Huddersfield Town) have left the club, while striker Jack Marriott returned to Sheffield on Wednesday to complete his full season loan.

Isaac Hutchinson of the U23 squad has loaned out Forest Green Rovers and 16-year-old Kaide Gordon will join Liverpool.

Millwall is keen on George Evans, although it would be puzzling why Derby would consider or allow a seasoned player who can act in defense or midfield to leave the non-biggest mid-season squad unless it is , the buying club or a replacement is pending.

Wayne Rooney has made it clear that he wants to join the roster. The Rams manager has his goals in a row as he indicated, and strengthening the attack department and the heart of the defense is considered a priority.

Asked at the weekend if he was still confident of making new signings, Rooney said: “Yes, but like I said, you never know in football. Where we are right now, I’m confident we can bring the players in pretty quickly.”

But it remains quiet on the entrance front, apart from speculation, of which there is always plenty during the transfer window.
