Rams swoop for Welsh keeper


The Rams have added to their goal keeping stocks with the signing of Welsh international goalkeeper Lewis Price from Ipswich Town.

The 23-year-old has cost an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of 200,000 with add-ons, and he has signed a three-year deal.

'Lewis is a young player with very good potential and I have signed him in the first instance to provide back-up and competition for our established goalkeepers,' said Rams boss Billy Davies.

Price`s arrival will probably see Lee Camp leave the Rams with QPR top of the list for his services.

Price progressed through the ranks at Portman Road and made his debut came against Gillingham in April 2004. The Bournemouth-born 6ft 3in keeper was a regular last season and played 75 times during his career with the Tractor Boys and six times on loan at Cambridge United.
He made his senior international bow against Cyprus in November 2005 and has won three caps.

Price joins Robert Earnshaw, Andy Todd, Tyrone Mears, Claude Davis and Ben Hinchliffe in the list of new faces at Derby, and Davies is promising more before the transfer window closes at the end of August. The name of Dutch striker Patrick Kluivert keeps popping up and it looks as if Davies will give the 30-year-old a trial this week, and the Rams boss has said the transfer moves will get into full swing in the coming weeks so watch this space
