Ahead of the Championship season kicking off this weekend, the Rams are under a transfer embargo and can only sign free agents and loan players on six-month deals.

Rooney currently has nine free-agents training with the first team – including Ravel Morrison and Phil Jagielka.

But the club must complete their signings by Friday at noon if the players are to be eligible to feature against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
