Nigel Clough says he can't find room for Luke Varney at Derby after he returned from relegated Sheffield Wednesday this week.

The 27-year-old had been hoping to earn a permanent move to Hillsborough, where he spent much of the season on loan, but the Owls' relegation from the Championship could scupper any deal.

Varney, who has two years left on his Pride Park deal, is not in Clough's plans for next season as he looks to streamline his squad and make room for the signing of Tomasz Cywka.

"We are not too badly off in the striker department. We have got Rob Hulse, Kris Commons and Chris Porter. We would like to sign Tomasz Cywka and Steven Davies is going to be fit for the start of next season." said Clough. "We are not too bad up there, so Luke might find himself surplus to requirements.

"Unfortunately, Sheffield Wednesday have gone down so we will have to wait and see what happens."
