Derby County’s loaned in midfielder Andy King has said that he will consider making his move to Pride Park at the end of the season.
Experienced midfielder Andy King joined Derby County on loan during the January transfer window from Leicester City, and – despite only being with the club for less than three weeks – he has failed to rule out the possibility of making his loan move permanent.
The 30-year-old spoke to the Derby Telegraph about his future.
“That is down to me to see how well I can do between now and the end of the season,” King answered when asked about the possibility of a permanent switch to Pride Park.
However, despite remaining open to the possibility of a permanent move, King went on to add that it does depend on where the club finishes this season, as he maintains the desire to play in the Premier League.
“We don’t know what is going to happen here between now and the end of the season in terms of performances and where Derby finish, and things like that,” King said.
“You always want to play at the highest level you can. For me, that is obviously playing in the Premier League. Whether that can be with Derby, hopefully, if the end of the season goes well, then why not.”
King has played two times for Derby since joining on deadline day, making his first start in a 1-1 draw against Ipswich Town. He will be hoping he continues to be involved throughout the rest of the season as Frank Lampard looks to bring promotion in his first season as manager.
