Matej Vydra congratulated by Cameron Jerome after scoring his 21st goal of the season and winning the Championship golden boot

Matej Vydra, a young man to strike fear into every defender in the Championship.

Twenty-two goals in a nine-month season and the main reason Derby County had a shot at gaining promotion to the Championship this time around. The Rams owe him so much and if the rumoured sale goes ahead you would think it would be to a large club. Suggestions in today’s media suggest otherwise. Swansea, WBA, and Fulham have been mentioned as Vydra’s likely next club, but all as of the time of writing are in the Championship.

Vydra at 26 years of age is surely in his prime and would be likely to repeat his goalscoring next season given the right club and set of players around him but are the mentioned clubs going to give him that opportunity?

Only time will tell if Derby County is to lose their star but another question is just how much should the Rams expect for his obvious talents. Figures ranging from £8m up to £18m have been suggested. Twenty plus goals a season gives any club a realistic chance of promotion and the Rams yet again seem to have blown their big chance.

So what would you, the supporter want to see happen with Vydra and if that involved selling how much would you expect to raise for Gary Rowett to invest in the club next season? You can leave a comment at the bottom of this article, look forward to hearing from you.

  • £12m or above would be my guess but we lost star assets before in Will Hughes, Tom Ince, and Jeff Hendrick for peanuts. Need to be strong and show we can’t be pushed around if we are to come out of this situation with any credibility and then move on and progress.

  • If James Maddison moves from Norwich, I would say how much he is sold for plus about 10-15 million more. We could have another reasonable season as Jerome has come into some form of late and I, for one, would like to see him partner up with Chris Martin if possible. Martin to hold up and Jerome to play off of him. We could alter slightly to a 3-4-1-2 to make it work with Lawrence and Weimann being rotated in the AM role.

  • Not to sell Matej Vydra it would cost us to much to fined someone of his talent plus we always lose out

    • I agree totally but we do need to conform to FFP and spending, or selling may well be the order for this coming Summer. The uncertainty now concerning Gary Rowett’s position as a manager or his imminent departure for Stoke City adds further to the deepening confusion surrounding the club.
