Derby County have been linked with a move for ex-Rotherham United defender Darnell Fisher recently. The full-back has fallen down the pecking order with Championship side Middlesbrough.

The Rams’ boss Paul Warne has poured cold water on the speculation though and has told Derbyshire Live: “There is zero truth in that. I know Darnell really well. If I want him I’d just phone him. So there is zero truth in that. It was said it was off a good source, but there is no better source than me.”

Bristol Rovers could keep winger for longer

Bristol Rovers could keep hold of Scott Sinclair for longer depending on how he does. The Gas have swooped to sign the 33-year-old on a short-term contract until January.

The winger has been without a club since leaving Preston North End at the end of last season. His new manager Joey Barton has said, as per BristolWorld: “He’s someone we have taken on a short term with both of us having a look at each other. Who knows? He could well be two, three, or four years here. If he reaches his level of performance, he is a fantastic player. I think he’s a really good addition to the group.”

Boxer Tyson Fury is interested in buying his local team Morecambe. The Shrimps are currently bottom of the league after one win in their opening 13 matches.

Fury, who lives in the town, has said, as per BBC Sport: “I’ve been offered to buy Morecambe. I own the training facilities anyway and training gym. So who knows? So I was thinking I invest X amount of millions in them. Basically throw it at them and keep them going up.”
