Derby County chief executive Tom Glick says Kris Commons and Steve Davies need to prove their fitness before extending their careers with the club. The pair, who missed part of last season through injury, both have a year left on their contracts. [LNB]Glick told BBC Radio Derby: "In Nigel Clough's opinion they're two of the most talented Championship players. [LNB]"Our bias is on extending for both, however, we and the players want to have a good start to the season." [LNB]Commons and Davies have both begun training for next season.[LNB] [LNB][LNB] Glick said the club were still chasing potential strikers for next season including, Scunthorpe's Gary Hooper, West Brom's Simon Cox and Billy Sharp from Sheffield United, and revealed they were not looking to sell striker Rob Hulse despite recent speculation. [LNB]"We're not actively looking to sell Rob and he's constantly being speculated about," Glick added. [LNB]"He's been a great player for us, we're fully aware of his contract situation. He has a year left to go, we're not in a position where we need to sell Rob, so it remains to be seen. [LNB]"Ultimately we're building a side that will win our way out of the Championship into the Premier League. In order to do that we need talent and we need consistency."
