Abdoul Camara has only played 183 minutes of Championship football for Derby County so far this season, but did manage to get an assist against West Brom in the FA Cup.

Manager Steve McClaren obviously has other preferences for his Derby side, and that will leave Camara frustrated. The 26 year old joined the Championship club from Angers in January 2016 and probably hasn’t had the start to his Derby career that he would have wished for.

However, Camara isn’t said to be interested at this stage and wants to ‘impose’ himself at Derby.

In the short term the player’s aims are to convince McClaren to pick him more often and then produce the goods for Derby when given the opportunity to do so.
