Nigel Clough has made enquiries about bringing in a young defender, who wasn’t named, to Derby on loan for the season.

“We are waiting for the club to get back to us.”

Patrick Kisnorbo had been expected to sign for Derby but when he was left out of the match against Chesterfield people felt that this meant he wouldn’t sign, Clough was quick to dispel the suggestion that this meant the deal was off. The Rams boss has admitted that if his loan approach proves successful then the 28-year-old Australian wouldn’t be signed though.

“If the answer is ‘yes’, then it would mean we wouldn’t need Patrick Kisnorbo.

We are still talking to Patrick’s representatives but we are waiting on one or two possible loans which could affect us moving for him.”

Clough was talking to the Evening Telegraph.

The young defender is believed to be a Premier League footballer, but for the time being his identity isn’t being revealed.
