Derby eye Spanish starlet

Derby County are lining up a deal for Spanish prospect Ivan Calero, Sky Sports understands.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder is a product of Atletico Madrid's academy, and he has spent the last couple of seasons playing for their B side.

Calero has been involved with Diego Simeone's first team and was called up for a Europa League match in 2013.

The Spanish youth international, who can play as a lone striker or anywhere across the forward line, is now a free agent and he has linked up with Derby as they enter pre-season.

Steve McClaren is now casting his eye over the teenager with a view to handing him a permanent deal.
