Kalifa Cisse: Could be handed Derby deal

Cisse, a free agent, filled the holding role in central midfield during a 2-1 defeat to Hull in the Under-21 Premier League Cup at Belper Town's Christchurch Meadow.

Aaron McLean's double put the Tigers in control at the break before Callum Ball responded late on for Derby.

Cisse has been training with the Rams but this was the first time the 29-year-old Mali international, formerly of Reading and Bristol City, had experienced any match action during his time with the east midlands club.

Head coach Steve McClaren and goalkeeping coach Eric Steele were at Belper and watched from the stand.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
