However, it seems Chelsea legend John Terry could also be in the running to take over at Derby, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

The former England defender has been on the coaching staff at Aston Villa for some time now and might soon be ready to move into a number one position in management.

Both Rooney and Terry were among England’s golden generation back in the mid-00s, and it will be intriguing to see how they get on in coaching after such superb playing careers.

The Mail add that Derby could also be the subject of a takeover bid from Sheik Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan – the cousin of Manchester City owner Sheik Mansour.
