Rory Delap: Considering his options

The 37-year-old played for 45 minutes of the Brewers' pre-season defeat at Ilkeston on Tuesday night.

Rowett added: "In an ideal world he's going to stay local. He'll have offers from one or two decent clubs but he's based in Derbyshire and at his age spending time with your kids can be as important as anything."
