Derby boss Clough targets Blackburn keeper for loan return

English Championship outfit Derby County are trying to bring back Blackburn Rovers stopper Frank Fielding to Pride Park on loan.

Rams boss Nigel Clough was already chasing the 22-year-old after back-up Saul Deeney hurt his shoulder in training on Monday.

But the chase became urgent following a muscle injury to first choice Stephen Bywater during Tuesday's home loss against Hull City.

Clough told BBC Radio Derby: "We will continue to try to get Frank in."

The England Under-21 international joined the Rams in October, impressing in 10 appearances before returning to Rovers at the end of the year.
