'If It's Football, It's Vital'

New Boys Did Enough To Impress

Despite our heavy defeat at Burnley on Saturday Paul Jewell has said that he saw enough from new Derby signings Luke Varney and James Tomkins to prove they will be a hit.

'I thought Varney did well for us and I think he will be a good player for us, he gives us some pace.

'I thought he showed a great aptitude and he kept going.'

On Tomkins he added.

'It was difficult for the young lad. He did OK but, obviously, he was shell-shocked after 23 minutes but at least we showed a bit of character and guts in the second half.'

Jewell was talking to the Evening Telegraph.

Varney will sign a contract in January for a fee that could rise to 1.5m, but he wont be available for our Carling Cup match with Stoke tomorrow, Tomkins however will be able to feature if selected.
