'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ram Raid

If reports are to be believed, Mick McCarthy is weighing up a move for Derby midfielder David Jones.

Jones struggled to hold down a place in Derby's starting line up last season and Paul Jewell may be tempted to let him go for the right price.

Which is where the fun may start.

Although Derby picked Jones up from Manchester United for 1m, it's widely accepted that this was a steal.

After impressive runs in the United Youth set up and in their reserves, he never quite managed to break through into the first team, kept out by the likes of Paul Scholes and Roy Keane, which in itself, is nothing to be ashamed of, and would apply to a vast majority, if not all of the central mids in the Championship today.

Last time he played at Championship level, he looked more than capable.

Naturally left footed, he plays with great awareness and has an impressive passing range. He's strong on the ball, and rarely loses posession, the one chink in his armour being a question mark over his pace.

With that kind of pedigree, it's hard to imagine County accepting anything below the 1.5-2m bracket when the bidding starts, which may well be fierce, but also worthwhile.

If he can be aquired for the right price, this young ram would have no problem turning into a wolf.
