Derby County moved to bring in Southend United youngster Isaac Hutchinson earlier in the summer, so it will be interesting to see if Kelman follows in his footsteps and completes a move to the second tier.

As covered here on The72, fellow Championship side Swansea City and Premier League outfit Spurs have also been linked with a move for Kelman. The 18-year-old is seen as a top young talent at Southend United and he has been absent from the last three games with a move on the cards.
