Of course, the situation is complicated by Bristol City’s interest, and Derby will hope that the two engage in a bidding war to raise the price a bit more. Either way, it seems likely that Knight has played his last game for the Rams, and it will be interesting to see who wins the race for the midfielder.


Ipswich Town join race to sign in demand League One man, report claims

Ipswich Town have registered their interest in Derby County midfielder Jason Knight, claims Football League World.

Knight, 22, is attracting growing interest following the conclusion of the 2022/23 season. His Derby County side missed out on a spot in the League One play-off places and now Knight looks set to move on after four seasons with the first-team.

The Republic of Ireland international has been a mainstay in the side for each of those seasons, racking up 166 total appearances for the Rams with 38 of those coming in League One last time round.

Earlier today, John Percy revealed that Bristol City had submitted two bids to sign Knight – both of which had been knocked back with the latest of which coming in at £1.5million – and now Football League World are claiming that the Robins’ Championship rivals Ipswich Town have joined the race to sign Knight.
