Skipper Rams Move Delay

Last updated : 14 January 2015 By .

Warnock underwent a medical at Derby yesterday, with the Rams keen to assess the extent of the ankle injury he suffered in the Championship game at the iPro Stadium a fortnight ago before rubber-stamping the move.

An 18-month contract is reportedly on the table for Warnock, once he proves his fitness.

The 33-year-old – out of contract in the summer and not yet offered new terms at Elland Road – hobbled off after being injured in a block tackle with Rams’ defender Cyrus Christie in the opening minutes of United’s 2-0 televised loss on December 30.

Warnock has not played since, although Derby remain optimistic that a deal, likely to be a free transfer, will be finalised once they establish when he is fit to return to training.
