McEveley & Teale Move On

Posted on: Wed 05 May 2010

Derby County will not be offering contract extensions to Jay McEveley and Gary Teale.

The duos contracts are set to expire at the end of June and they met with manager Nigel Clough at Moor Farm on Tuesday to discuss their futures.

Both players joined Derby in January 2007 and went on to play key roles in the Rams' rise to the Premier League during the 2006/07 season.

With Clough looking to freshen up his squad over the summer he said it was a tough decision to let two good servants to Derby County move on.


He said: "It is always hard to tell players they don't have an offer on the table.

"Both have served Derby County well, but we felt we needed a break from the past.

"Jay and Gary are model professionals and I am sure they will get fixed up elsewhere."

Defender McEveley - previously with Blackburn Rovers - made 101 appearances for Derby and scored 6 goals, the last of which came in his final appearance against Cardiff City on Sunday.

Versatile attacker Teale arrived from Wigan Athletic and made 104 appearances for the Rams, scoring 4 goals.

In addition young professionals Jermaine Johnson, Henrik Ojamaa, Alex Forde and Mark Dudley will also leave the club at the end of June when their contracts expire.

All departing players leave with Derby County's very best wishes for the future.

Lewis Price and Lee Hendrie are also out of contract in the summer but have another week to run in their spells on loan at Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion and will meet with Clough next week.
