LATEST UPDATE : Derby County are now pushing close to sign Charlton Athletic key player on three-year contract

Derby County want to sign Charlton Athletic’s former Everton star Thierry Small this summer, but sources tell Football Insider that a new three-year contract is already being discussed at The Valley.

Small, 19, is a transfer target for the Rams, who are trying to improve ahead of their return to the Championship.
Sources revealed that the Addicks will exercise their option to extend Small’s current contract while he considers his options.

The left-back joined Charlton from Southampton for free in January and has made 14 League One appearances this season.

Derby County wants to recruit Thierry Small from Charlton.
It looks that Small will have to make a decision, but with no official bid yet, Charlton’s offer is currently the only one on the table.

Opting to activate his extension boosts the club’s negotiation position and allows them to profit more from any deal.
Charlton might profit from the 19-year-old’s departure just six months after he joined the club for free.

However, he remains a vital element of the team’s ambitious future ambitions under owner Charlie Methven.

The offer of a three-year contract at The Valley may encourage the defender to settle and develop without the continuous movement he has endured in recent years.
Small was previously considered hot property, with Football Insider claiming interest from Tottenham last summer, while Rangers were also offered the option to make a move.
