Paul Jewell’s Roy Carroll hopes at an end?

Derby County manager Paul Jewell appears to have let go of any hope of signing the Rangers custodian Roy Carroll. Sky Sports reports that Jewell has instead decided to turn his eye elsewhere for a goalkeeper since Rangers’ inability to find a goalkeeper for themselves is taking too long.

Carroll was once at Manchester United, if you remember, but he couldn’t cut the ice there. He was not so impressive at West Ham United either and moved to the old firm giants Rangers last summer but again the Northern Ireland player failed to make any headway. He has made just one first team appearance so far this season.

Jewell has this to remark about the deal:

It was close this time last week when we’d got permission to speak to him. Everything was agreed with Roy, but Rangers were looking to bring another goalkeeper in. That is really frustrating, not only for myself but for Roy as well, so it looks as if that’s not going to happen. We might have to move on elsewhere now.

Elsewhere? But where?
