Cameron Jerome is set for a medical at Derby County on Tuesday ahead of a proposed £1.5m move.

The 31 year old striker has struggled for game time this season partly due to injury but is now on the verge of leaving Carrow Road tweeted the Telegraph`s John Percy on Tuesday evening.

Derby are chasing automatic promotion and see Jerome as a proven Championship goal scorer who can maybe help them over the line. He`s made 138 appearances for City since joining from Stoke in 2014, scoring 42 goals.

He cost a reported £1.5m then and that`s what he`s being sold for say The Telegraph



The eventual fee could rise to £2m if Derby secure promotion.

From a Norwich point of view, he`s been pretty ineffective this season, with just one league goal and he`s on a hefty salary too. His Premier League CV is also very poor with no real impact made for Norwich, Stoke or Crystal Palace in his previous stints in the top flight.

Having said that, he scored the opening goal at Wembley on my best day out ever in football and with a goal average of one in just over every three games, he`s not been bad value for money.

With the signing of Marcus Edwards announced a short time ago, I wouldn`t be surprised if Mr Webber had another hungry young star ready to come in.

Let`s hope so.

  • Jerm1ssome cannot get the ball over the line yet alone an entire club : )
    Proper replacement please. We now have more than enough loan players.

  • DG there is little choice but loan and free transfers are the only options. Let?s be positive and look on the other side: that the club is slowly building a reputation of playing youth and attracting exciting talents here, whether it?s academy, loan, or permanent signing. To get Marcus Edwards is really a coup.

  • So now down to 1 forward and he has been poor. Hopefully they have one lined up as they have let Jerome go. Maybe this Mata chap. I wouldn’t be against Abrahams getting a push up but we still would need another forward.

  • We cannot risk another loan and with several million coming in I would have thought the club could afford a half decent striker.
    It is lack of goals which has been our problem all season.
