Derby Set Sights On Bolton's Eagles & Andrews

Newspaper reports on Sunday suggest Derby County are interested in out-of-favour Bolton duo Chris Eagles and Keith Andrews.

Both players look set to leave the Reebok Stadium this summer, although any interest from the Rams may be dependent upon which division they will be playing their football next season.

Eagles' contract expires at the end of June, but he could leave Wanderers this week - with Derby making an initial enquiry over a loan move which would run until the end of the campaign. The Football League's emergency loan window closes on Thursday, so any deal would have to be rushed through before the deadline.

Andrews has spent the season on loan at Brighton & Hove Albion and admitted last week that he would be surprised if he remained a Bolton player. The 33-year-old still has another year on his contract with the Trotters and is a subject of interest from Steve McClaren, but promotion to the Premier League would almost certainly rule out a summer transfer.

Eagles has made 106 appearances since joining Bolton from Burnley in 2011, while Andrews has been restricted to just 29 games since moving on a free transfer from West Bromwich Albion the following year.
