The 34 year old left-back Stephen Warnock joined Derby County back on January of 2015 and even though it has been only around a little more than a year since he has been performing with the Championship League club, it seems like Warnock is not going to be playing an important role for Derby County on a long term basis as his contract expires in the summer and his contract with the English club is not expected to be extended any further.
Stephen Warnock appears to have built an unhealthy relationship with the head coach of Derby County, Darren Wassall. The 47 year old English manager of Derby County, Darren Wassall has recently revealed information about Stephen Warnock’s situation as he said: “When I first took over, I told Stephen that Marcus Olsson was going to be first choice left-back
“I said we’d love him to stay and fight for his place but we also understand that he is out of contract in the summer and would be looking for another club for next season. So, we didn’t want to stand in his way.He has been a great pro while he has been with us and played very well for the first team on numerous occasions this season. But we think it is right and proper that we help him try to get a new club for next season.’’
Warnock is currently performing for Wigan Athletic after having joined the League One club on a loan deal which runs up until the end of the season and Warnock will have to make an impact with Wigan Athletic if he wants to continue performing with the English club and hopefully earn a contract extension.
