Potential January Departures for 3 Derby County Players…

In an analysis of the situation at Derby County, we identified three players who may be on the verge of leaving the club during the upcoming January transfer window.

Derby County’s ambitions for the current season include a strong push for promotion from League One, following their near-miss in the playoffs last season. The team, which spent most of the previous season within the top six, experienced a heartbreaking exit from the playoff places on the final day of the campaign.

While the current season has seen Derby County’s performance fluctuate, they possess a promising lineup under the guidance of their manager, three-time League One promotion winner Paul Warne. With 12 new additions to the squad during a busy summer transfer window, coupled with high-profile departures, the club’s roster has undergone significant changes.

With the January transfer window approaching, it’s likely that there will be further player departures. In this regard, we’ve identified three players who could potentially leave Pride Park.

  1. Eiran Cashin: Eiran Cashin is a player who appears destined to leave Derby during the January transfer window. The defender rose through the ranks of the Rams’ academy and has become a vital part of the first-team setup in recent years. He made 52 appearances in all competitions last season and was recognized as the club’s Young Player of the Year.

    Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion made several unsuccessful attempts to sign Cashin, with a reported offer of £4 million on the table. Unfortunately, the deal couldn’t be completed by the transfer deadline. Derbyshire Live suggests that Brighton is expected to return with a fresh offer for Cashin in January, which could also attract interest from other clubs.

    Paul Warne, Derby’s manager, acknowledged the significance of the potential move to Brighton for Cashin, but also stressed the importance of the club’s interests in the matter.

  2. Max Bird: Max Bird is another player who managed to stay at Derby despite interest from other clubs during the summer transfer window. Like Cashin, Bird came through the Derby County academy and has established himself as a key figure in the midfield, contributing with two goals and six assists in 48 appearances last season.

    Hull City, a Championship club, had their bids for Bird rejected in the summer. It is expected that Hull City will return with a new offer for the 23-year-old midfielder in January, with Bird showing a desire to join the MKM Stadium. As Bird’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season, Derby may decide to sell him in January to avoid losing him for free in the summer.

  3. Darren Robinson: Midfielder Darren Robinson joined Derby County from Northern Irish side Dungannon Swifts in May 2021. He received the club’s Scholar of the Year award for the second consecutive year last season and was promoted to the first-team squad during the summer.

    While the 18-year-old has made appearances on Derby’s matchday squad this season, he is yet to make his debut. With strong competition in the midfield department, including players like Bird, Conor Hourihane, Korey Smith, Liam Thompson, Louie Sibley, and Tyrese Fornah, Robinson’s opportunities for game time could be limited. A loan spell may be a beneficial option to aid his development.
