Quotes of the week

The Wales international only joined the Rams this summer in a £3.5million move from Norwich but faced recent speculation that he had failed to settle at Pride Park.

Earnshaw, who has yet to open his account for his new club, brushed aside doubts over his future insisting the competition for places will keep everyone on their toes.

Surprised

He said: "I have been a little surprised to find myself being linked with a move away from Derby already.

"I found myself being asked by people when I was going and I knew nothing about it.

"There is no question of that, I've only just moved there.

"Even my sister asked me whether I'd left, but I'm not going anywhere.

"The boss (Billy Davies) was looking for more strikers even when he bought me, so I was very aware of that. He has now signed Kenny Miller, but I was expecting something like that.

"That is what he wanted, and we all understand that. He has his squad now and I have no problem with that. I'm looking forward to it all."
