Derby County are interested in signing Todd Kane, who is leaving Chelsea this summer, according to The Times.

Kane is out of contract at Chelsea this summer and is set to leave the Premier League giants, according to the report.

It has also been claimed that Derby - who reached the Championship playoff final this past season - are interested in securing the services of the 25-year-old right-back and have offered him a contract.

 

Frank Lampard’s side, though, are not the only club who are reported to be interested in the former England Under-19 international.

According to The Times, Derby are just one of several Championship clubs who have made offers to the defender.

Good signing for Derby County?

Kane has failed to break into the Chelsea starting lineup and has been out on loan at several clubs over the years, but the right-back is very talented and has shown what he is capable of at the Championship level.

According to WhoScored, the 25-year-old made 36 starts and three substitute appearances in the Championship for Hull City this past season, scoring three goals and providing one assist in the process.
