Derby boss Jewell having no problem attracting new signings

Derby County boss Paul Jewell insists he's having no problems attracting talent for their Championship campaign next season.

"I have to tell you a lot of players want to come here. I've got a lot of agents calling me because they see that next season we are hoping for a bright time," Jewell told the Derby Telegraph.

Asked how many ins and outs are likely, Jewell said: "I can give you any number you wanted and say that's what I want, but it never works that way in football.

"What I want is my squad competitive, fit and ready to go from August 9.

"We need to build a new team, a hungry team, a fit team, a team that has a bit of pride and passion, and one that is going to take us forward. There will be players here who will not be a part of that, and there will be players here who will be a part of it.

"Is my mind made up on who will be staying and who will be going? No, because my mind gets made up sometimes by offers.

"I have an idea. I have been here long enough now to work out who I would like to keep and who I would like to move on. I know the players I am looking to bring in and the type of players I am looking to bring in."
