Paul Clement outlines whether Derby County will look to sign more players

Derby County have already signed two new players in the January transfer market.

Paul Clement has told the Derby Telegraph that he will not spend any more money on players in January, despite Derby County’s recent slump.

The Rams have taken just two points from the last 12 available to them, and they have slipped out of the automatic promotion spots.

Derby are now four points behind second placed Hull City, but Clement insists that he is happy with his options.

"I have got a good squad of players and I need to work with the players I have here and I have full confidence in them," the Derby boss said, when asked whether he was planning to go back into the market.  

Derby wrapped up their business in January early on by signing Abdoul Camara from Angers and Nick Blackman from Reading.

The duo were both supposed to increase Clement’s side’s attacking threat, but they have not had the desired impact so far.

Camara has generally been used as a substitute, while Blackman hasn’t scored in any of his three appearances to date.

The Rams’ overall form has caused concerns that they could be in for a repeat of last season - where they were one of the leading contenders for promotion, before a major slump caused them to miss out on a play-off spot.
