Derby County has made an improved offer for Florian Jozefzoon. A fee of around £2.5m has been offered for the 27-year-old.

The Rams have competition for the talented Dutch player from fellow Championship club Leeds United but the improved offer and the chance of working with Frank Lampard may swing the deal.

Jozefzoon has played for Ajax and PSV during his career but moved to England in the 2016-17 season. He has had a hard time fitting in with Brentford having had little playing time during the proceeding seasons and was widely used as a substitute. He did make 43 appearances for Brentford during the 2017-18 season, scoring 7 goals.

Born in French Guiana, he moved to the Netherlands when just two years old and has subsequently played international football at U19 and U21 level. Able to play as an attacking winger or midfield player, he would be a useful addition to the Derby County squad, as Frank Lampard looks to have an attacking style of play.
