Derby County: Rams now lining up move for Terell Thomas

Derby County: Rams now lining up move for Terell Thomas -Derby County News

According to a report in the last 48 hours, Derby County are now lining up a move for former Reading defender Terell Thomas.

The Lowdown: Terell departs Reading

The 26-year-old first arrived in the Championship when he put pen to paper on a short-term deal with the Royals after being released by Crewe Alexandra back in March.

However, his contract at the Select Car Leasing Stadium is set to expire later this week, making him a free agent, and after clocking up just two appearances under Paul Ince last season, the centre-back will now be on the hunt to find a new club, which potentially could be the Rams.

The Latest: Derby monitoring Thomas

In an article published by Berkshire Live, it’s claimed that Derby, alongside Birmingham City, are both ‘weighing up moves’ for Thomas.

The source states that County are ‘looking at’ bringing him to Pride Park, with the player currently in the process of assessing his ‘options’ ahead of the new season.

The Verdict: Get it done

With the takeover saga still rumbling on, Derby may be unable to secure Thomas’ services immediately, but should they be able to get him in as a free transfer, he’s already got plenty of League One experience and could prove a shrewd capture.

Before joining Reading, the 6 foot 2 powerhouse, who was hailed a “fantastic” player by Ince, averaged 3.9 clearances and won 3.8 of his aerial duels per 90 minutes for Crewe, via WhoScored, highlighting the strong physical presence.

Desperately in need of fresh faces, the addition of Thomas would be welcomed with open arms, and not having to spend a single penny on transfer fees is an added boost for whoever the new owners may be.
