‘They will leave the club’ – Report says Derby County duo are heading for the exit
DerbyshireLive claim that Derby County duo Scot Carson and Florian Jozefzoon will leave the club at the end of this month when their contracts expire.
Derby County will wave goodbye to the 35-year-old Carson and the 30-year-old Jozefzoon at the end of this month when their contracts expire, with Scott Malone having already sealed a permanent switch to Millwall.
Wayne Rooney’s Rams side finished the Championship season just a point and a place above the drop zone but after securing their Championship status, they’ve since been thrust into yet more off-field controversy.
The club is awaiting on an EFL decision which could land them a points penalty going into next season, whilst clubs across the country near the end of this month and the end of many players’ contracts.
Jozefzoon spent the last season on loan wit Rotherham United where he made 24 Championship appearances without scoring.
Carson meanwhile was on loan at Manchester City where he managed one Premier League outing for the club, after spending the previous five with Derby County in the Championship.
Both will now leave the club, as per DerbyshireLive though.
Neither Carson or Jozefzoon’s departures will put a huge dent in Rooney’s summer plans.
He’s largely waiting on the outcome of his club’s EFL appeal before he can really get to work in the summer transfer window and even then, it’ll still be made much more difficult given their off-field fortunes.
It’ll be harder for the Rams to attract the kind of players they want with issues regarding pay having surfaced this season and obviously a points penalty to potentially contend next season.
But they remain in the Championship and in with every chance of being likewise this time next year, when hopefully the saga of the past 12 months has blown over.
