Derby County and Aston Villa fight for Chelsea ace?

Derby County reportedly renewed its interest in Chelsea star Ethan Ampadu in January.

The Rams wanted to lend the 18-year-old midfielder during the transfer window in the summer, but were beaten back by blues boss Maurizio Sarri.

Derby boss Frank Lampard confirmed in September, "I looked at him (Ampadu), I talked to the (Chelsea) manager, and he told me he wanted him in their squad, so it was a very short conversation . "

It is now proposed that the Rams might revisit the situation in the New Year.

Derby County 3-1 Birmingham City

Birmingham Live reports that Derby and championship rival Aston Villa are considering a new loan option for Ampadu.

Villa should have inquired in the last window for the availability of the teenager.

Of course, both clubs have strong ties to Chelsea, with Lampard in charge of the Rams and John Terry as deputy manager at Villa Park.

Asked about transfers, Villa boss Dean Smith told Birmingham Live: "We're looking for a number of players in the January market.

"Myself, John (Terry) and Richard (O'Kelly) have teamed up with Suso (Sports Director, Jesus Pitarch) and everyone has come up with good ideas, so we'll continue with that."

Ampadu has yet to play for Chelsea his first team this season.

He was put out of action by a knee injury, although he is now fit again and is in the newest Wales squad along with Derby duo Tom Lawrence and Harry Wilson.

The Rams already have two players borrowed from Chelsea – Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori.

Derby Face Villa at Pride Park Stadium on Saturday (3pm).
