Transfer Deadline Day - Ayala Deal On Hold

Transfer Deadline Day - Ayala Deal On Hold

Daniel Ayala`s loan move from Liverpool has been put on hold until the player recovers fully from his hamstring injury although Nigel Clough still hopes to bring the player to Pride Park as an emergency loan once the Liverpool medical team give him the all clear. After reporting earlier today that the deal had been agreed (apologies for getting your hopes up!) it has now been decided to wait until the young defender has recovered sufficiently to be able to make an impact on The Rams` squad. Talking to the official website Clough was hopeful of the deal being completed early next month stating:

'We still want Daniel to join us and we are pretty confident that will happen, albeit later in February. We have had him checked over and the advice we are getting is that he won't be ready to play for a number of weeks yet. It makes sense for everyone involved that Daniel continues his rehabilitation with Liverpool at Melwood."

Liverpool have been tremendous to deal with throughout this process and I would like to thank Kenny Dalglish and Damien Comolli for their help and willingness to allow Daniel to come to Derby County. The player himself is a great character and the time we have spent with him today showed us he is the right type of person and player we want to bring to Derby County.'
