Training opportunity at Derby County for Colorado quartet
FOUR players from American club Colorado Rapids will train with Derby County next week.
The Rapids hope the experience will help Andre Akpan, Tony Cascio, Chris Klute and Martín Rivero in their development.
Akpan is a 24-year-old forward, Cascio a 22-year-old midfielder, Klute a 22-year-old defender who made his debut for the Rapids in their final game of the season just completed and Rivero, 23, is an Argentine midfielder and the Rapids' young player of the year.
"This is a great opportunity for these young players to continue their development and gain valuable experience overseas," said Rapids' technical director, Paul Bravo.
