Championship transfer news: Chelsea youngster in talks over move, Leeds United and Middlesbrough eye left-back

Derby eye Chelsea youngster

Derby County have are reportedly in talks to sign Chelsea youngster Kasey Palmer this summer, according to Sky Sports.

Palmer spent the latter half of last season on loan with the Rams, helping the club reach the play-offs under Gary Rowett and it seems he could be set for a return to Pride Park under new boss Frank Lampard.

The Blues have granted Derby permission to speak to Palmer this summer over a potential move, while it is believed Norwich City have also made a bid to sign the midfielder on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old is likely to find opportunities difficult to come by at Stamford Bridge this season and therefore appears destined to move on, either on loan or permanently.

Leeds and Middlesbrough eye Bryan

Leeds United and Middlesbrough have both registered an interest in signing Bristol City fullback Joe Bryan.

According to the Bristol Post, the two Championship sides were impressed by the defender’s performances for the Robins last season, a campaign in which the 24-year-old bagged seven goals in all competitions.
