Derby live updates

Family affair

Family pride as well as three points will be at stake when Wigan meet Derby in the Championship on Sunday.

Twins Will and Michael Keane left Manchester United on loan this week, with Will heading to Wigan and Michael to Derby, and by a quirk of fate their debuts could well be against each other.

It's a bit of a family affair this weekend. I can't believe I'll be up against my brother, Will, if I play on Sunday.

I had been hearing rumours about Derby's interest for a while. In the end, the move happened last minute and I am just happy it went through.

Hopefully I can improve the squad and help Derby this season. This is a massive club and it is a great opportunity for me.

Sheffield United are expected to confirm the appointment of Nigel Clough as their new manager at a press conference at Bramall Lane on Wednesday afternoon

The Blades sacked David Weir 12 days ago following a run of just one win in 13 matches and Clough is poised to become the club's eighth permanent manager in the last six-and-a-half years.

Clough, 47 is understood to have agreed a severance package with Derby, who sacked him at the end of last month after nearly four years at Pride Park.
