Derby County contact Leeds United over spying claims

Leeds United duo Kemar Roofe and Marcelo Bielsa nominated for Championship award

A man was seen near the perimeter fence with a pair of binoculars, a change of clothes and wire cutters, after breaking through Derby's security.

"At this time no further comment will be made".

An EFL statement read: "We are aware of the reports in relation to an incident at the training ground of Derby County".

No arrests were made, according to police, and the man was sent on his way.

Derby County have said the person police spoke to acting suspiciously outside their training ground on Thursday was an employee of Leeds United's football staff.

With Lampard leading a session on Thursday in the build up to the game, the Twitter account for Derbyshire Constabulary's Response Unit confirmed a man had been found by the perimeter fence of Derby's training ground.

Derby say they are "in discussion" with officials from Leeds about what happened.

Derby are now eight points behind Leeds ahead of Friday night's match, and lost the corresponding fixture at the start of the season 4-1 at Pride Park.
