Derby poised to capture Mansfield defender Tom Naylor

Championship side Derby County have agreed a fee with Blue Square Premier side Mansfield Town for defender Tom Naylor, understands BBC Radio Nottingham.

The highly coveted youngster has been subject to interest from Premier League side Fulham amongst others but it is believed the Rams are on the verge of securing his signature.

Taylor has mainly been deployed at centre back by the Stags but is also capable of playing at right back.

The Nottinghamshire side had become all but resigned to losing the 20-year-old star after he impressed during spells at Burnley and the Rams themselves earlier this season. League One side Bournemouth had previously been the only side to lodge an official bid but their approach was knocked back during the summer.
