Blanchett Training With Derby

Blanchett Training With Derby

Danny Blanchett could well be heading to the Championship after eagle eyed Vital Crewe posters spotted him in pre-season training with the Rams.

There's been no confirmation of Blanchett joining up with Derby so we can only assume it's a trial.

Surprising though it is, the former Peterborough left back has been linked with the likes of Brighton, Crystal Palace and Charlton in recent months, although most fans shrugged off the rumours.

It's not to say he didn't impress. His release was possibly the most surprising of the handful to go in May, with no explanation offered from Dario. A dip in form following the rumours of Championship rumours however may suggest his head was turned and the decision was out of the club's hands.

Derby meanwhile are clearly looking to add that Crewe Alex experience to their Championship squad. With James Bailey and John Brayford both impressing last season, today they've completed the signing of former Alex keeper Adam Legzdins. The retirement of Robbie Savage and imminent departure of Luke Varney however will leave space for Blanchett.
