Savage On Cusp Of Derby Move

Savage On Cusp Of Derby Move

Robbie Savage is on his way to Derby, after Blackburn late last night accepted a £2million bid for the midfield battler.

Savage has agreed to move to Paul Jewell's club after the Rams came up with cash Rovers demanded, and Sunderland have refused to increase their offer from the original £1m they bid.

Welsh international Savage will sign a two-and-a-half year deal at Pride Park, happy to accept the mission impossible challenge of keeping them up.

Realistically, Jewell sees Savage, 33, as the type of on-field leader to bring the club back to the Premier League at the first time of asking next season.

It is expected Derby will pay £1.5m up front and further cash based on appearances and status in the Premier League.

A deal is expected to be concluded this evening.

Well good luck to the chap. Hughes has got three years good service out of Sav and negotiated a decent price for him considering he is 33! Let's hope Sav can inspire them to turn their season around.

Yeah, good luck to Sav and Derby. Sav has given us superb service but the time is right for all concerned.

Good luck to Savage and a great bit of work done by the club getting potentially £2m for a 33yr old

I wish him all the best. I will not boo, but I will applaud him when he returns to Ewood. He has been a good and loyal servant for us.

I want Derby to stay up now so Robbie can stay in the premiership - he might be the lift the players need. Good luck to him
