Derby County are said to be looking at bringing disillusioned St Patricks Athletic midfielder Keith Fahey to Pride Park.

Keith Fahey player of the month for March in the Irish Premier League
Fahey, a 25 year old from Dublin moved to the Irish league when failing to get a contract whilst a youngster at Arsenal and Aston Villa. Keith is rumoured to be unhappy after failing to win any medals whilst with St Patricks Athletic and is looking to progress his career, although as the photograph shows Fahey did win the player of the month award for March 2008.

Derby face a tough task to land Fahey, as several other top class clubs are also looking. Sunderland and West Ham in the Premiership may be tempting for Fahey and the Rams also face competition from Championship rivals Reading for the signiture.
