Derby manager Nigel Clough has confirmed the Rams have accepted an approach from an unnamed Premier League club to take Giles Barnes on loan.

The 20-year-old scored a brace at Old Trafford in the Carling Cup semi-final defeat by Manchester United last week and now looks set to leave Pride Park.

Clough said: "Giles has made it clear that he wants to play in the Premier League again and this is a great opportunity for him to do that."

He added: "It's something that came up on Thursday and I am comfortable to give the player the chance to speak to them.

"To be honest, it is a very good deal for all parties involved and I wouldn't have agreed to it if I didn't believe it was in the best interests of Derby County.

"Giles is a terrific lad with a big future ahead of him and we wish him well if the deal goes ahead."
