Andres Yallana (no'15) the Rams next target?
The Rams are reported to be on the brink of signing Andres Yllana (27) on loan for the rest of this season.

Yallana is an Argentinean midfield player who is currently finding life difficult at Brescia. The Seria A team are currently in a lowly 13th place in the Italian top division.

With only 6 starts (8 appearances as sub) in the first team this season, Andres is not in favour at the club and they are willing to let him go out on loan and possible sale at the end of this season.

There is however some difficulties with the loan as Yallana is currently under investigation for a possible forged passport. Andres was born in Argentina but has been living and playing in Italy on an Italian passport since 1999.

The passport was taken from him in November of last year and until the matter is sorted out it would be difficult to see how the Rams could bring him to Pride Park.
