Derby Confirm Savage Interest

Derby Confirm Savage Interest

Derby County manager Paul Jewell has confirmed his interest in signing Robbie Savage.

Sunderland appeared to be leading the way in the chase to sign the 33-year-old former Welsh International, but they could not match our asking price (understood to be around £2 million) so this has left the door open for Derby, Wigan Athletic and Fulham, and Jewell (who has had tried to sign Savage when he was the manager at Wigan last season) has admitted his interest in Sav.

Jewell told the Northern Echo: "I'd like to have Robbie, and I've spoken to Blackburn, but whether we can do something is out of my hands. We've not yet agreed a fee, so it's up to the chairman if we can do a deal because it's also quite an expensive one for us.

"But Robbie is a player I like, and I am interested in. I'd like to bring someone of his character to Derby.

"I know people do look at his character, but he is a better player than those people give him credit for
."

Sav isn't having any shortage of clubs wanting to sign him, the fact that they are all teams battling for survival make them ideal clubs for him, and a move will come soon I'm sure.

If I had to bet I would say he is going to Sunderland... there is a rumour going around that we want Steve Sidwell as a replacement. Not a bad idea me thinks.

Yer Sidwell would be absolutley awesome, would be a great signing really rate the guy, for a team like us look at Reading, they are no where near the team they were with him.

Derby WOULDN'T be the right move for him I don't think, although having said that he would be part of a stronger team battling to come back so it could be the challenge he wants?!?!
I'd happily have Sidwell come in.

I think Wigan are a good bet for him as well. Would fit into what Bruce wants to achieve me thinks...
