West Brom reluctant to part with Derby target Cox

Derby County are chasing West Brom striker Simon Cox.

The Express & Star says sources in the East Midlands confirmed today that the former Reading and Swindon man is on a list of forwards being watched by Rams boss Nigel Clough, who is looking to strengthen his strikeforce.

Albion would not consider selling Cox, who they signed from Swindon for an initial £1.5million a year ago.

But Clough would hope to persuade Baggies officials that an extended spell on loan with Derby and the promise of regular Championship football would represent a useful next phase in the player's development.
