Derby County has confirm five potential replacements for Max Bird as his set to departs on January transfer window.

We examined five potential replacements that Derby County might contemplate in case Max Bird departs during the January transfer window. Derby County faces the possibility of losing their midfielder, Max Bird, in January.

Bird, a product of the Rams’ academy, has become a vital part of the first team in recent years. Last season, the 23-year-old scored two goals and provided six assists in 48 appearances across all competitions. However, the Rams missed out on the League One play-offs on the final day of the campaign.

This season, Bird has continued to be a regular presence, but his contract is set to expire at the end of the season, making Derby vulnerable to his potential departure in January. Hull City had two offers for Bird rejected during the summer, and it’s expected that they will return with a fresh offer in January. Bird is reportedly interested in a move to the MKM Stadium. Birmingham City, under the management of former Rams boss Wayne Rooney, may also compete for Bird’s signature.

As the list of admirers for Bird continues to grow, we have identified five potential replacements that Derby could consider:
