  • Gary Rowett asks Derby County for permission to speak to Stoke City about becoming their new boss

Derby said in a statement on their website: "Derby County Football Club can confirm that Gary Rowett has asked for permission to speak with Stoke City regarding the vacant manager's position at the bet365 Stadium".

At first, Derby owner Mel Morris was extremely reluctant and did not want to lose Rowett, but Sky Sports suggest that his stance has softened as realisation hits that the former Birmingham City and Burton Albion boss wants to leave.

The 43-year-old led the Rams to the Championship play-offs this season, but suffered defeat to Fulham at the semi-final stage.

Despite his loyalty to Derby, who he served as a player, Rowett is expected to join Stoke having been tempted by the greater budget and better short-term prospects of a club...

Gary Rowett, the Derby County manager, is "poised to get" the Stoke City job, according to the Daily Mirror (live blog update 03:10). "With both clubs now likely to speak regarding terms, we have introduced Mark Warburton as the 8/1 favourite to replace him at Pride Park".
