Derby boss Jewell impressed by Everton's Osman

Derby County boss Paul Jewell is delighted to see Leon Osman coming good at Everton.

Jewell said: "There are young players like Leon who will blossom.

"I remember watching him play for Derby against Sheffield United - I was sitting next to David Moyes and Alan Irvine in the directors' box and at that time they weren't quite sure whether he could cut it with Everton because they looked at his size.

"They knew he was a good footballer but his time at Derby County helped enormously and he has gone from strength to strength at Everton and is one of their main players now."
