Championship trio Derby County, Swansea City and Millwall all reportedly want Cameron Jerome – will Phillip Cocu bring the striker back to Pride Park?
Derby County are interested in re-signing former £2 million striker Cameron Jerome this summer, according to shock claims from A Spor, while Swansea City and Millwall are also keen to bring the veteran back to Britain.
Now 33 years of age, it seemed like we had perhaps seen the last of Jerome in England’s second tier.
One of the most lethal strikers in the history of the Championship didn’t exactly set the world alight during his six month spell at Pride Park in 2018, netting just five times in 18 matches for The Rams.
But reports suggest that Derby could offer Jerome a fresh start in the East Midlands with the experienced forward set to bring an end to rather underwhelming spell in Turkey with Goztepe.
Swansea and Millwall are also interested will all three clubs hardly banging in the goals during the 2019/20 campaign.
Jerome’s best years might be consigned to the past but a man with his track record should not be underestimated. The former England U21 international has been promoted from the Championship three times, twice with Birmingham and once with Norwich.
In fact, during his two second-tier campaigns at Carrow Road, he hit the target 34 times in total.
Derby and Swansea will be praying that he is capable of a late-career purple patch as they look to build on what has proved to be a slightly disappointing campaign.
