Rush hopeful on Forsyth

15 May 2013

Chief executive Sam Rush is confident Derby will complete the permanent signing of Watford midfielder Craig Forsyth.

Forsyth played 10 times for the Rams, mainly as a makeshift left-back, during a two-month loan spell at Pride Park towards the end of the season.

He was recalled by the Hornets ahead of their Championship play-off campaign.

After overcoming Leicester in a dramatic semi-final, Gianfranco Zola's team face Crystal Palace at Wembley on May 27 with a place in the Premier League up for grabs.

Rush is sure Derby will conclude a deal for Forsyth, who has a year remaining on his contract at Watford, after the play-off final.

He told the Derby Telegraph: "Craig Forsyth is a player who did extremely well here, a player who we would like to bring in and I am confident once Watford's play-off commitments are finished we will do that.

"I would expect him to be at Derby next season."
