Davies departs for Derby

A conclusion has finally been reached in the long running Ben Davies transfer saga, with the Notts winger finally joining Derby County. The Magpies had rejected numerous bids for the former Shrewsbury Town and Chester City man since the transfer window opened, but were finally able to agree a fee with Derby yesterday after Davies handed in a transfer request. The deal is thought to be worth around £350,000 and Davies is expected to make his debut in the Rams' weekend clash with Nottingham Forest.
