John Brayford and James Bailey look set to depart for Derby County in the coming days after the club reportedly accept offers for the pair.
It's said that a combined deal worth £1.6million, £800k of that up front, to the Alex has been agreed between the clubs and only medicals stand in the way of the deal being completed.
Derby's move for Brayford is unsurprising, with the Rams keeping an eye on the right back for the previous 18 months. It was expected the 22 year old would depart this summer with just 12 months remaining on his contract and a £400k deal reported to have been agreed last week.
A move for youngster James Bailey comes as a little more surprising, especially seeing as rumours centred around a Ashley Westwood move to Pride Park. We only saw Bails really break through towards the end of the season and whilst he's undoubtedly got the talent to go all the way in the game - is it a tad early for him?
Derby boss Nigel Clough, Brayford's manager at his former club Burton Albion, was in attendance for the final home game against Bradford at the weekend, clearly taking a last looking before he made his move.
The fee - if correct and not highly exaggerated - would no doubt be a stunning fee for the club to get in League Two, but that in no way takes anything away from Brayf and Bails having said similar about Nicky Maynard a couple of years ago (Bristol City now set for a minimum £4million profit).
With over £100k from the tribunal fees for youngsters Marshall and Lund and a million pound loan being paid back into the club's accounts, this transfer on top certainly means we should be able to count ourselves financially secure for now.
Wether that means we will see investment into the first team or if it will go entirely on Dario's hobby at Reaseheath, only time will tell.
