Derby boss still targeting duo
Clough has already had bids rejected for the pair and, in Barker's case, has been told to raise his offer to closer to £1million. But with the Rams due to receive £500,000 for the sale of Tyrone Mears to Burnley and striker Emanuel Villa also leaving Pride Park, Clough has more funds at his disposal and is hoping he can snare his targets. "We are still talking (to Blackpool) and, hopefully, we will be going back in the next few days," he told the Derby Telegraph. "We have made offers for both players (Barker and Brayford), which have been rejected, so we are in the process of drawing up fresh offers which will go in as soon as we can."
