Former West Ham’s midfielder Diego Poyet is reported as being close to clinching a deal with Championship promotion hopefuls Derby County.

Poyet’s West Ham was cancelled by mutual consent earlier this season.

The Uruguay under-21 international saw his development stall with the Hammers despite a bright future being predicted for the midfielder after joining from Charlton.

But now the 21-year-old is close to securing a deal with Steve McClaren’s side in an effort to get his career back on track.


And the opportunity to bring in another midfielder outside of the transfer window is too good to pass up.
