Derby are trying to sign former goalkeeper Lee Grant on loan from Burnley according to Skysports.com

They need a replacement keeper to temporarily cover for the injured Stephen Bywater who is suffering from a wrist problem. He is expected to be out of action for a month.

Grant’s agent, Gino Culbertson, has confirmed to skysports.com that Derby have an interest in Grant.

Grant has had limited opportunity in the first team this season since signing in the summer from Sheffield Wednesday. Brian Jensen is doing enough to keep him out of the side.

It is thought Grant, 27 is keen on a loan move in search of regular first-team football and could be tempted to play for a club he knows well after starting his career with the Rams.

Burnley though may be reluctant to let him leave Turf Moor unless they can find suitable cover for Brian Jensen.

It begs the question why we would release him, if we then had to search for another keeper to bring in?
