Rasiak To Go?

Derby County are expected to sell Grzegorz Rasiak before the transfer window closes today.

The Rams could receive Ł2m-plus for the Polish international striker who arrived at Pride Park on a free less than 12 months ago.

His likely destination is Wolverhampton Wanderers but Sunderland and Sheffield United have also shown interest in the 26-year-old.

Rams boss Phil Brown wants Rasiak to stay but admits the club have to consider any serious offers.

"I fully expect more than one or two bids on the table before the window closes," said Brown.

"Clubs get the jitters as the deadline approaches. The bids can get bigger and bigger and it can become a bit of an auction.

"If that's the case, then I am governed by the finances at the club. They will dictate whether Grzegorz stays or not.

"I've said all along that I want to keep the best players here but, if I have to lose Grzegorz, then hopefully there will be one or two players coming in that will be more than capable of filling his boots."

Rasiak's likely departure will bring in transfer cash and free up space in the wage budget. He is believed to be one of the highest earners.

Derby insist they would not be bowing to financial pressure if the player was sold but the bank would see part of the Rasiak money.

Brown will also receive a chunk for squad strengthening.

"I have always asked for two or three more players. If I have to lose Grzegorz, then it has to be more than two or three. That's how I'm looking at it," said Brown.

"The squad is already thin, without losing your best striker. Finding somebody to score goals in this division is going to take money, time, energy and effort.

"If Grzegorz goes, we will have to replace the 16 or 17 goals he scored last season. That is a tough ask."

Rasiak's 16 league goals helped the Rams reach the play-offs, where Preston ended their promotion hopes.

Rasiak has said he wants to play in the Premiership and Wolves are the bookies' favourites to go up.

They started showing an interest in the striker and Spanish midfielder Inigo Idiakez at the back end of last season. Wolves assistant manager Stuart Gray watched the Rams lose to Watford on Monday.

Football League clubs must complete their business before 5pm today, although clubs can sign unattached players after the window has closed.

Rasiak joined Derby in September last year after Italian club Siena failed to register him following his move from Groclin.

He is currently away on international duty with Poland, who face home World Cup qualifiers against Austria at the weekend and Wales next Wednesday.

Heard it all before with Idiakez and I'm getting sick of it. If Idiakez didn't have to go, why does Rasiak? If we sell him any promotion/play off chances can be kissed goodbye. None of our other strikers can get you 20 goals a season like Rasiak can.

Untill I see a bid has been accepted, I won't bel;ieve he is going.

well if rasiak goes, we can say goodbye to any realistic chances of promotion, if brown can wave his magic wand around n get someone else to replace him i will give him a medal, but if tudgay or pesch can get 20 goals i will give them medals as well, there jus not capable of scorin that amount of goals in this divison, its ashame reali as rasiak hasn't really had a decent enough carrer here
But if he does go, none of the things will be relevant reali, n lets hope that he doesnt get sold

My Dad has told me Sunderland have offered 3.2 million for Rasiak.....BUT the transfer deadline coles in less than 50 minutes. Our best hope could be a deal can't be done in time.

Also on sky sports.com, it says Tudgay could be leaving be can't sell both surely?

An offer believed to be in the region of Ł2 million made by Wolves was Accepted by Derby County.


BUT




Rasiak rejected Wolves offer, as he was not happy with the personal terms, and decided to stay at Derby

Premiership clubs can still sign players from football league clubs, untill midnight. So Sunderland could still come in with an offer for Rasiak. Just when I thought we were safe I find this out

I think he will too. But I will feel a lot happier, when it's midnight, and that nagging doubt in the back of my brain, can disappear.

I drank all the beer over the bank holiday weekend I would go too the shop but at the moment there's a thunder storm. I've got a bottle of Raki, which could disappear if he gets sold and I get all depressed

There's only 4 more hours to go, it will fly by....hopefully.

Very true, I don't really like that site Durkos is talking about, I am signed up for it and do post occasionally, but there's to many idiots on there who talk crap.

Yes Rasiak joins Spurs

I don't see where our goals will come from now, and it is very unlikely Phil Brown can find another Rasiak, as now the transfer window is closed, we can only sign players not attatched to a club.

Rasiak and Mills leave, and no-one comes in....I thought out squad was already too small

On the one hand I feel happy for Rasiak, on the other hand I feel a bit sorry for Derby.

You saved Rasiak for our football's sake

The lure of the premieship and probably a big salary took him away, I can't really blame him. He had some magical performances for Derby which were a pleasure too watch. Though I'm angry he's gone, I hope he gets his chance at Spurs and does well.

Bad news. To be near the top we needed his goals, none of our other forwards are 20 goals a season players, now you have to wonder where our goals will come from.
