Clough keen to keep Foxes pair

30 December 2009 02:01
Dickov and Campbell are poised to return to the Walkers Stadium after Monday night's goalless draw at Championship leaders Newcastle signalled the end of their spell with the Rams.

Clough would like to negotiate an extension for both players and revealed he is close to doing so regarding Campbell, whom he also hopes City boss Nigel Pearson will grant permission to play in the FA Cup this weekend.

"We're keen to keep DJ and Paul Dickov and we think we have agreed in principle, we hope, to extend DJ's stay initially until the end of January," said Clough.

"The FA Cup complicates matters slightly because we have to get permission to play him in that."
