Ex-Rams ace Craig Ramage explained why he would sell Chris Martin to Wolves, if he were in charge of Derby, but only for a minimum of £7 million, during an exclusive interview with the Derby Telegraph.
According to the Sun on Sunday (print edition, December 3rd, page 65) the Black Country outfit are lining up a swoop for the 29-year-old striker, with Nuno Espirito Santo intent on strengthening his options in January, as he looks to guide his side back to the Premier League.
The Scotland international has actually been in extremely poor form for the east Midlands outfit this season, scoring just one goal in 19 outings thus far, although 15 of those have come from the substitutes bench.
And Ramage, who made 56 appearances for the Rams, urged his former club to cash in on Martin, suggesting that they should demand £7 million for the striker, during an exclusive interview with the Derby Telegraph:
“Martin has been a great servant to Derby County but if Wolves came in for him in January and offered, say, £7m, I would sell him - as long as that money was reinvested in the squad, plus a bit more, perhaps."
The opening of the January transfer window is only just around the corner, so Derby will have to ensure that they have a ready-made replacement lined up, if they do indeed decide to sell Martin to their Championship rivals.
