Sources: Derby County plot move for Grosicki after West Brom exit

Derby County have set their sights on signing Kamil Grosicki after his West Brom exit, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.

The Polish winger, 33, is a free agent following the expiration of his 18-month Hawthorns contract at the end of June.

A Derby source has told Football Insider the club are plotting a move for Grosicki to join on a free transfer.

Derby have struggled in the transfer market so far this summer.

This is mainly due to the transfer embargo the EFL placed on the club for failing to submit audited accounts for 2016, 2017 and 2018.

They are still able to sign free agents on year-long contracts or loan players on six-month deals but within a wage cap.

Mel Morris remains in charge of the club after a failed takeover bid last season.

Grosicki spent the majority of last season on the periphery at The Hawthorns.

He was mere seconds away from joining Nottingham Forest on loan last summer but the paperwork was filed roughly 20 seconds after the window shut.

After an appeal, the transfer was not rattified.

There was no way back in for the Poland international under Slaven Bilic but he was handed a run of games when Sam Allardyce took over.

In January, Allardyce told Birmingham Live that Grosicki had “refused” to sign for Forest during the January window.

This came as Big Sam looked to free up funds in Albion’s ultimately unsuccessful relegation fight.

Grosicki is free to sign for Derby after leaving West Brom as a free agent this summer.

He could join Ravel Morrison at Pride Park after the club announced his arrival at the weekend.
