Ex-Derby boss Todd involved in Tranmere deal for Sunderland fullback Kay

Former Derby County boss Colin Todd is now assisting players.

Todd is involved in Michael Kay's move from Sunderland to Tranmere Rovers.

"Michael went to Tranmere for a month initially, and they liked what they saw and asked to keep him until the end of the season," Todd told Sunday Sun. "He was going nowhere, but now he's playing first-team football and Tranmere have had a good little run. We've talked about him going there longer term and now it's a case of wait and see.

"The important thing, in my new role, is that there's a relationship of trust with the player.

"That takes time, but the player's welfare is paramount.

"We would never force a player into a move. We can only offer our honest advice and as a legal company we can also help with that side of things.

"It's a new challenge for me. I do miss management, but it's nice to be involved in the game again. It's a lot of travelling, but I'm enjoying it.

"As well as myself, Gary Gill and Gary Bennett are also involved, and between us we bring a lot of experience to the company. What we've achieved in the game can only stand us, the company and our clients in good stead."
