Derby County are in partnership talks with Dutch club FC Utrecht.

"The idea is to exchange ideas and there are lots of positives for both clubs," Rams boss Paul Jewell told the Derby Telegraph. "It is something (scouts boss) Bill Green and Adam Pearson are moving forward and we are very keen to forge links.

"It's an education. We can look at different things - coaching styles, youth set-up and there may be a case of us loaning them one or two of our young players to give them experience, a bit like Manchester United do with Antwerp."
