Derby manager Nigel Clough is targeting up to six new faces to add to his squad for next season.
The Rams secured their Championship status with a victory over Charlton on Saturday and Clough is now beginning to think about summer transfer targets.
"There are a lot of players out there who would give a lot to play for Derby County," he told BBC Radio Derby. "A lot of money was spent in the last 12 months, so we know there's not going to be fortunes but maybe three or four fees and a couple of free transfers."
Having satisfied the chairman's demand of staying in the Championship, Clough now hopes the club can progress.
"We want to improve in terms of performances, league position and we'll go from there," he said.
