Derby eager to hand Stoke target Gary Rowett a new deal

Derby County are eager to fend off reported interested from Stoke City for their gaffer Gary Rowett by tying him down to a new deal at Pride Park.

Rowett only took charge of the Rams in March, signing a contract through to June 2019, but such is the progress the Championship outfit have made under the Englishman that they are understandably determined to cling onto their in-demand boss, who is looking to become the first Derby manager to lead the club into the top-flight since Billy Davies back in 2007.

Over the weekend Rowett swiftly emerged as one of the favourites to replace the sacked Mark Hughes, with the Daily Mail reporting that the Potters were planning to splash out the £1.7m required to activate the 43-year-old’s release clause.

But if the betting is to be believed then Derby need not worry as it’s the former West Ham boss Slaven Bilic who now leads the way in the Next Stoke City Market after bookmakers cut his odds from 14/1 to just 1/5 on Monday night.

Since losing his job at West Ham back in November Bilic has been linked with the likes of Swansea and West Brom, who in the end appointed Carlos Carvalhal and Alan Pardew respectively. Meanwhile, Goal report that Australia want the Croatian to take over the Socceroos for the 2018 World Cup.

While Bilic may be currently be the scorching hot favourite to replace Hughes at Stoke, Andy Dillon reports that the Croatian is enjoying his downtime, meaning the Potters would have to wait until the summer.

“He (Bilic) is keen on a return to management and in the Premiership but Stoke would have to appoint an interim manager until the end of this campaign if they want to land their number one candidate.”
