Clough quashes Hulse exit talk

Published Add your comment

Derby manager Nigel Clough has again moved to deny that he plans to allow striker Rob Hulse to leave the club.

The 29-year-old was heavily linked with a deadline-day move to Middlesbrough until County issued a statement saying that he would not be leaving Pride Park. Further reports have circulated since, though, suggesting that Hulse may now move on loan, with a view to moving permanently in January.

"I don't see that - how would it benefit us?" Clough told the Derby Telegraph. "Our policy has always been that if we get a big offer of significant value for a player then we will look at it.

"So I don't see how letting Rob out on loan would benefit us."

Clough does accept that he may have to deal with the issue in January, though, adding: "If it rears its head again in January, then we will deal with it. That is the obvious time as well because Chris Porter will be fit around then and we'll know a little bit more about where we are in the league."
