Perth coach Dave Mitchell has indicated the Glory would be interested in signing defender Andy Todd from Derby.

Mitchell revealed the 34-year-old former Blackburn captain would be a quality addition, capable of filling one of the central defensive positions vacated by the departures of Hayden Foxe, Nikolai Topor-Stanley and Dino Djulbic.

"The boy Andy Todd, whose playing at Derby, we've been interested in him," Mitchell confirmed.

Todd's Derby team-mate, Australia international Mile Sterjovski, is also a target for Mitchell, who previously coached Sterjovski at Sydney in the old National Soccer League, developing him as a player before he headed to Europe.

Local reports suggest Sterjovski could leave Pride Park after being overlooked midway through the season, but Mitchell believes a change in manager may have convinced him to remain in England.

"Nigel Clough came in and he likes Mile, so he's got another year on his contract too, so with the managerial change, it could inhibit him coming back to Australia," Mitchell said.
