Dickov 'loving' Pride Park life

16 November 2009 09:11
Dickov is on loan at Pride Park until January and has scored once in nine appearances since linking up with the Rams before the close of the summer transfer window.

He is enjoying his time with Nigel Clough's side and is waiting to discover whether his stint with Derby will be extended in the New Year.

"I'm loving it here," Dickov told the Derby Evening Telegraph. "If somebody had told me when I started out that I would still be playing first-team football at 37, I would have snapped their hand off.

"I am playing and really enjoying it. I feel as fit as I have done in a long time.

"It's no secret I enjoy it here. I knew a lot of the lads already and I get on well with everybody.

"What happens in January is something other people are saying to me more than I am thinking about myself.

"I am probably halfway through my loan. I have just got to concentrate and get a run of games under my belt. I have started the last three and I need to get more games before I even start thinking about January.

"As long as I am playing and involved, everybody knows I will be giving my all."

He added in the Derby Evening Telegraph: "I said when I first arrived I still feel I have a lot of football in me, a lot to offer still. I just wanted a chance to prove it. I have had a chance to get in the team and thankfully I am doing OK but I still feel as if I can get better.

"I am probably halfway through my loan. I have just got to concentrate and get a run of games under my belt. I have started the last three and I need to get more games before I even start thinking about January. As long as I am playing and involved, everybody knows I will be giving my all."
