Rams goalscorer Steve Davies has publicly admitted that he will be leaving Derby County before the start of the season.
He tweeted on Twitter his thanks to Rams fans but he is going to leave the club possibly for a team in the South of the Country. This seems to be a denial that Ipswich Town and Paul Jewell have upped their offer for his services.
