Derby County set to bolster management set-up

Derby County chief executive Tom Glick has said the Rams are close to appointing a director of football.

And Glick told BBC Radio Derby: "There are a number of high-quality candidates interested and excited about this club and this opportunity.

"I am encouraged and expect to make that appointment in the coming weeks."

Glick added: "But we're not in a rush to do it, it's a long-term appointment to improve us.

"It's not slowed us down on this window at all, we have been preparing for this window for some time. But it is an important addition for the football club."
