Derby County are likely to sell Matej Vydra this summer after missing out on promotion to the Premier League, according to the Telegraph.

The Rams lost 2-1 to Fulham on aggregate over two legs meaning they will go into an 11th consecutive Championship campaign next season.

The Rams are keen to slash their wage bill and balance their books in order to be more financially stable after missing out on promotion to the Premier League. Therefore, players such as Matej Vydra are likely to be sold.

The 26-year-old has scored 21 goals for the Rams in the Championship and is the top scorer in the division. There is no doubt that there will be significant interest in him over the coming months.

Vydra joined Derby August 2016 from Watford for a fee of around £8 million. Despite only getting 5 goals in his first season at the IPro, he has bounced back this season and been their main man.

The Czech Republic international had a loan spell at Club Brugge from Udinese before he joined Waford on loan in 2012. He scored 22 goals for the Hornets in his first season but after failing to get promoted to the top flight in his first season there, he had an unsuccessful loan stint at West Brom in the next season.

Vydra then returned to Watford on loan for the 2014/15 season and helped them get promoted after scoring 16 goals. They made his move permanent but loaned him out to Reading before selling him onto Derby. He could be set for another move this summer.
