The Rams have a huge squad of players for this season after spending heavily again in the closed season. They are seeking to offload several players and have just loaned out 28-Year-old striker Nick Blackman.
Blackman has been with Derby County since 2016 but has found it hard to break into a Rams side since making his move from Reading, where he scored 18 goals during his three-year stay.
Macca Tel-Aviv benefited from the loan signing of Blackman last season where he played 31 games and scored 10 goals, also contributing a goal in the Uefa Europa League in his 5 appearances in that competition. A further goal was scored in the Toto Cup, where he played three games.
Blackman now moves out on a season-long loan to Spanish second division outfit Sporting Gijon. Derby County has wished him well at his loan club. It is not known if the loan may become permanent following this season.
Didn’t work out for @nblackman89 at the Rams. He never moaned, even when played out of position. Took time to engage with fans which led to #NicksKitCollection with us and resulted in Derby kit being sent to charities in India and Barbados. Good luck for the future Nick pic.twitter.com/rUMg95mQvt
