Derby loaned Aston Villa-younger Rushian Hepburn-Murphy until the end of the season
It is thought that the 21-year-old will initially train with the Rams & # 39; Under 23 group while striving to move forward with his career after being with League One club Tranmere for the first part of the campaign.
Hepburn-Murphy scored five times in his 23 appearances for Tranmere, including a hat trick in the 3-1 at MK Dons in November.
He was a substitute in the second half in the 6-0 FA Cup defeat by Manchester United and in total he started 11 games in all competitions.

AC Milan wanted to raid the lower competitions of England for a full-back as Series A giants eye sensational swoop for Wigan youngster Antonee Robinson

Due to concerns about Financial Fair Play, the Rossoneri left back Ricardo Rodriguez might be transported to Fenerbahce and looking for a replacement.

In the midst of the transmission chaos in Manchester United, the only certainty is the departure of Tahith Chong … the younger does not intend to stay in Old Trafford because agent claims that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer & # 39; is thinking of himself & # 39;
Transfer windows are forever shrouded in doubt by ] Manchester United . This is no different, the only certainty is that Tahith Chong is ready to leave for next season.
Without a contract in the coming months, the winger does not intend to sign new terms at Old Trafford amid concrete interest from both Inter Milan and Juventus .
Sportsmail understands that the 19-year-old has rejected himself funny conditions to stay with United, even though his performances flattered to cheat when being called.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave Chong only four starts and his agent was pronounced on Wednesday, suggesting that the manager represented a problem.
He (Solskjaer) has a different view of Tahith than the lead, & # 39; said Erkan Alkan in the Dutch press.
& # 39; A coach thinks of himself, I think of my player. He has come to a point where he feels he is not going any further. Then it's time to look further. & # 39;
That United offered a lucrative contract suggests that they are determined to maintain Chong's services. Some supporters may question the wisdom of this, because they will deal with the signing of Bruno Fernandes in long-term negotiations with Sporting Lisbon.
There is doubt as to whether differences can be resolved, with United refusing to meet £ 60 million north requirements. Anyway, they know they need quality in the midfield and must deliver, otherwise audible dissidence of the stands will increase.
Solskjaer could certainly have made do with Fernandes' latest activity against stubborn opposition, United lacked runners in midfield.
A possible £ 25 million move for Jude Bellingham from Birmingham City – who has four goals in the championship – will not resolve that either, given the 16-year period – old would probably go back to the Midlands on loan.
Further investments in youth are a positive sign, on the condition that the outcome is more satisfactory than what happened with the outgoing Chong.
Victor Valdes reveals that Barcelona sensation Ansu Fati had to buy new boots during a youth tournament because his & # 39; a complete disaster & # 39; was hurting his feet
Barcelona coach Victor Valdes has revealed that he recently had to buy wonderkid Ansu Fati a new pair of boots.
Fati, 16, became the club's youngest debutant since 1941 when he entered the 5-2 win over Real Betis as a 78-minute substitute.
But the teenager caused an alarm at the coaching staff when he complained about persistent pain in his feet during a youth tournament in Russia .

& # 39; I told him to bring me his boots and they were a complete disaster, they caused him pain, & # 39; said Valdes at a press conference on Monday.
& # 39; No one thought it could be the boots, but I did. We went to buy new ones. & # 39;
The winger got his big chance on Sunday in the absence of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez and Valdes gave him a glowing assessment.
& # 39; He is strong, fast and confident, & he said.
& # 39; You have to give this kind of talent freedom so that it flows. I am so happy for him, he called me this morning and it made me very excited.
& # 39; I am grateful to Valverde for giving him a few minutes. His performance did not surprise me.
& # 39; He stands for hard work. He has the soul of an elite player and he is a predator in the box. & # 39;
Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde, said he had no trouble giving Fati his debut despite his tender years.

& # 39; He is the youngest player I ever debuted, but like veterans, we look at performance, he can give us good performance and that's why I gave him a debut.
& # 39; Ansu surprised us because of his qualities, we will see what happens in the future. & # 39;
Bobby Duncan of the line for Fiorentina as former Liverpool-younger two in U19 wins Bologna after controversial move
Bobby Duncan made it to Fiorentina when he scored twice for the Under-19 side in their 6-3 win over Bologna.
Duncan made an impressive debut last week in a friendly game against Perugia and then scored a header and a cool penalty on Sunday for the U19.
The 18-year-old, who is a cousin of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, posted a picture of himself with Fiorentina owner Rocco B. Commisso after Sunday's game.
His tweet read: & # 39; Happy to score my first goals for the club today and even bigger to catch up with Mr. Commisso after the game. I look forward to giving everything for the club. #forzaviola. & # 39;
Duncan joined Fiorentina in a controversial £ 1.8 million move in August, leaving Anfield after a lengthy transfer saga.
Liverpool initially refused two loan bids from the Viola for Duncan, which was shown during the preseason, and scored in their 6-0 win over Tranmere Rovers.
The attacker, Saif Rubie, then claimed that the attacker should remain in Anfield against his will and accused the reds of mental # bullying & # 39; from his client.
– Duncan played for the Manchester City Academy until 2018.
– Liverpool spent £ 200,000 on prizes for the top-rated City striker.
– Duncan scored in Liverpool's 6-0 preseason win over Tranmere.
– The 18-year-old joined Fiorentina in a £ 1.8 million move in August.
– Duncan is the cousin of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.
Liverpool strongly rejected these claims before accepting a bid from Fiorentina for a player they only bought from Manchester City last summer for £ 200,000.
Duncan has received the No 26 shirt for this season, but his appearance for the Under-19 side suggests that he is still a long way off to bend his first team.

He was promoted to the club under the 23 side for the 2019-20 season, where he was expected to become partner Rhian Brewster, before opting to join Fiorentina.
