Derby Confirms Man Who Spied On Their Training Was A Leeds Employee

Derby County have accused Leeds United of spying on their training ground after a man was escorted away from the perimeter fence by police.

And he also apologised to Derby and their manager Frank Lampard.

'Well that's good. I spoke to him yesterday afternoon myself and he did the same to me so I'm pleased he's gone again and said that.

An official complaint could be made to the EFL or the Football Association but the EFL said today: "We are aware of the reports in relation to an incident at the training ground of Derby County". "The responsibility of this is me, I am responsible, there is some precision that I need to give".

"It's true it was someone from Leeds United", he told Sky Sports.

The Rams have made a positive start under Frank Lampard so far, with 43 points from 26 Championship games.

Frank Lampard's side travel to Sky Bet Championship leaders Leeds on Friday night, with the two clubs separated by eight points in the table.

Yannick Carrasco offered to Arsenal as Belgian eyes move back to Europe
Arsenal are in the hunt to nab Porto midfielder Hector Herrera on a free transfer in the summer, according to Tuttomercato . It was earlier reported that Manchester United are not the only club eyeing a signature for the 25-year-old Belgian winger.

"I am the only one responsible for it, because I didn't ask for the permission of Leeds to do it". I've been using this kind of practice since the World Cup qualifiers with Argentina. "For some people it is the wrong thing, for others it's not".

Manager Frank Lampard stopped training until the incident had been resolved.

'If we are going to talk about culturally I did it somewhere else and it was fine then that doesn't work for me because I don't believe that it is fine on that level.

'It's disrupted our build-up to this game, and the unfortunate thing for us is it's disrupted us from our end without doing anything.

'Now, Leeds can beat you 4-1 they are a fantastic team but we had someone in the bushes that day so twice this season now. "People are going to say I'm trying to make an excuse - but I'm going to speak like this after the game win, lose or draw".

"We had somebody the day before our first game against them, which we lost 4-1", said Lampard.

Earlier a Derbyshire Police statement had confirmed a man was removed from a position near the club's training ground. The man was asked to leave but it wasn't followed up like it has been this time. We were training on team tactics, shape, personnel and the fact that Harry Wilson wasn't training.
