Kieron Freeman: International call-up

Freeman could win his 10th cap at that level in Llanelli on Friday, March 22.

The 20-year-old full-back, signed from East Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest last summer, has made 12 first-team appearances for Derby this season.

He has been on the sidelines in recent weeks with an ankle injury but was

back in Nigel Clough's squad as an unused substitute in the Rams' 3-1 defeat to Birmingham last Saturday.

Meanwhile, Freeman's team-mate Mark O'Brien has been placed on stand-by for the Republic of Ireland Under-21 Squad for their forthcoming international against Portugal in Dublin on Monday, March 25.

Like Freeman, O'Brien returned from a month out with a knee injury as an unused sub at St Andrew's.

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
