It's a lie: Derby deny Christia Atsu rumours
Derby County have denied interest in Ghana winger Christian Atsu.
It is claimed that Atsu's parent club, Chelsea, are said to be unhappy with the lack of action that Atsu has seen at Goodison Park and plan to terminate their agreement with Everton this month, with Derby being mooted as his next destination.
But Rams boss Steve McClaren dismissed the reports.
'I know him from Vitesse Arnhem in Holland but no, no interest in him,' McClaren said.
Atsu, who is currently on Africa Cup of Nations duty, has played only three times for the Toffees in the Premier League this season.
