Derby to deal in released Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley

Published on: 19 September 2017

Released Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley is set to sign for Derby County.

The Derby Telegraph says Rams boss Gary Rowett is eyeing a move for Ledley, 30, as he looks to bolster his midfield.

Derby's deadline day move for Maikel Kieftenbeld collapsed after his paperwork was not submitted on time.

And the failed switch left Rowett short of options in the middle of the park as he bids for promotion.

The Rams sit 15th in the Championship after a disappointing start, with defeats against Bristol City and Barnsley highlighting a need for strengthening.

Ledley would bring a wealth of experience with over 500 club appearances and 73 international caps under his belt.
