Cocu replaces Lampard at Derby County

Cocu replaces Lampard at Derby County After Frank Lampard left for Chelsea, Derby County have moved quickly to appoint former PSV coach Phillip Cocu as their new boss.

Newly appointed Derby County manager Philip Cocu has quickly made his intentions known regarding transfers, with Kieran Dowell of Everton an early target. The midfielder had seemed destined for a move to Huddersfield Town, but a last-gasp approach from Derby could change his destination.

Phillip Cocu has made Everton's England Under-21 midfielder Kieran Dowell his first signing at Derby County.

Dowell has moved to Pride Park on a season-long loan deal.

The 21-year-old also played in the Championship last season, helping Sheffield United to gain promotion to the Premier League.

"He is an exciting young player with a lot of potential, and I am looking forward to working with him," Cocu told Derby's official website.

Dowell's arrival follows Cocu's appointment of former Brighton and Hove Albion defender Liam Rosenior as first-team coach.

Ex-Netherlands and Barcelona midfielder Cocu was brought in by Derby when Frank Lampard took the reins with former club Chelsea after a solitary season in charge of the Rams.
