Derby County Chief Executive Tom Glick says he is happy with the signings his side have made so far but the deals are not over yet after they completed their fifth summer signing with the capture of Nathan Tyson on a free transfer from Nottingham Forest. After acting early to make the loan deals of the three long term loaness, Frank Fielding, Theo Robinson and Jamie Ward, into permanent signings The Rams` have also brought in Craig Bryson from Kilmarnock and Tyson put pen to paper on a three year deal earlier this week.
With a deal also in place for Aberdeen striker Chris Maguire when compensation can be agreed with his club it has been a positive summer transfer window so far and Glick says they are not finished yet with deals looking to be made to strengthen key areas of the squad. An offer of around £1million including add-ons for Barnsley defender Jason Shackell could tempt the Yorkshire club to sell with the player reportedly keen on the deal and offers rumoured to be on the table for Watford`s John Eustace and Martyn Waghorn of Leicester City. Speaking to dcfc.co.uk in relation to the transfer dealings Glick said:
‘We are very happy with the business we have concluded so far. We made our move early to bring Frank Fielding, Jamie Ward and Theo Robinson to the Club, which was a great start for us. We had to bide our time with the next deals but we’ve managed to sign Craig Bryson and Nathan Tyson, who I am sure will be very valuable assets for us.”
“Craig was, arguably, the best player at Kilmarnock and he was their captain as well. Nathan is a player who we know about having played against us on a number of occasions, and we’ve had our eye on him for some time. We feel good about the depth and quality in key places, but we’re not done yet.”
