Bailey Unlucky

Bailey Unlucky

James Bailey has been unlucky with injuries and the emergence of Jeff Hendrick meaning that Derby County are now willing to listen to offers for the midfielder. Bailey did well in his first year at Pride Park winning the young player of the year award but an injury at the start of last season coupled with the form of Hendrick has meant he has been on the fringes of the squad and with Will Hughes looking likely to be around the team next season Bailey is unlikely to feature. Talking to the Derby Evening Telegraph about the player Nigel Clough said:

'James was a signing who did well - especially in his first season. A couple of injuries have set him back but no one could predict Jeff would come as good as he has so soon. And Will Hughes will be there or thereabouts next season so it's unfortunate that James is sort of surplus.'
