Derby County: Leeds United contacted over training ground 'spy'

Pride Park, home of Derby County

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.

The sixth-placed Rams visit the Championship leaders on Friday.

They said in a statement they were "in discussion with Leeds club officials in relation to this incident".

The BBC has asked Leeds for a response, after they said earlier on Friday they would not comment on initial reports.

Derbyshire Police said officers were called to Derby's training ground on Thursday morning and a man was spoken to at the perimeter fence.

They added: "No damage to the fence was found, and... no arrests were made."

The English Football League have told the BBC that it is a matter for the two clubs to resolve.
