Derby plan to discuss Kalifa Cisse's future at the club in the coming days.
Free agent Cisse has been on trial with the Rams for three weeks and has played in two development squad matches against Hull and Middlesbrough.
The 29-year-old former Reading and Bristol City midfielder, a Mali international, will find out soon whether he has done enough to earn a contract at Pride Park.
"We will have a chat," Derby head coach Steve McClaren told the media on Thursday.
"Kalifa has come in , the boys have been great with him and he has done very well."
