Derby County have ended their interest in former Leeds captain Sol Bamba, the Derby Telegraph reports.
The free agent had been training with the Rams and his former manger at Leicester City Nigel Pearson before the latter was suspended by the club last week.
he suspension of Pearson as Derby manager has seen Bamba lose any chance he had of winning a Rams deal and he is no longer training with the club.
Bamba was club captain at Leeds and was excellent for the club upon his arrival on loan from Palermo. However, his performances soon dipped.
Leeds now have Pontus Jansson and Kyle Bartley forming a solid centre-back pairing.
Derby County currently sit 20th in the Championship table but it is not defenders they should be looking for. They are the lowest scorers in the league with just five goals from 10 games this season.
