Closed season, transfer season or even silly season. Call it what you will but it always seems to start early at Pride Park.
Again rumours of the immenent departure of John Brayford have started to circulate in the media.Sky Sports have speculated that newly promoted Cardiff City may be primed to make a move to capture the highly rated defender.
The report also links Brayford with West Ham, Wigan and Stoke City. There has been no reaction as yet from the Rams but speculation has been expected and should the right price be agreed, it will be no big surprise to see Brayford make to move to a side in the Premiership.
