Conor Doyle looks set to pen a two year professional deal with Derby County sometime this week
The Rams look set to offer talented American Conor Doyle a two year deal if his parents agree. Eighteen year old Conor is currently on a scholarship at Creighton University in Nebraska and he will have to give up the scholarship to become a professional with Derby County.

Doyle has no problem with getting a work permit as he already has an Irish passport, enabling him to play in England. Conor already plays for Dallas Texas at Youth level and it is not thought that the Rams will have to pay anything for the services of the young striker.

Conor has a very good record in the American leagues being voted most valuable player in his last season. He will hope that his parents give their blessing to the proposed two year deal with the Rams, and Rams fans will be hoping this promising talent gets his chance with Derby and the Championship. He was due to leave England yesterday to return to Texas but Nigel Clough has put the deal to the youngster and awaits his and his parents reply.
