Derby consider transfer of Green
DERBY COUNTY boss Nigel Clough admits that Ireland midfielder Paul Green could be sold during the transfer window.
The 28-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and, as there has been interest from Championship rivals, Derby could decide to cash in on the player and sell him now.
"Two or three wanted to know if we were to sell him, what we would want for him. So there has been talk but no concrete offers," said Clough.
"There are enough teams in the Championship either sweating at the bottom or close to the play-offs who might think Greenie can make the difference. And if they don't make the play-offs, then Greenie is still a good person to have in their squad for the next couple of seasons.
"We will see what happens this month. We certainly will not be going out looking for offers and we would love to keep Paul around, certainly for the rest of this season, but that will be dictated by other clubs and any offer that comes in."
O'Neill keen to play for Ireland
FORMER England youth cap Luke O'Neill has expressed his desire to play for Ireland.
The full back, playing for non-league side Mansfield Town in defence alongside Dubliner Joe Kendrick, has been capped by England at U17 level and also played first-team football for Leicester City before dropping into the Conference.
But O'Neill, 20, qualifies for Ireland through a grandparent and he has asked to be considered at U21 level.
Goal drought at an end for Doyle
