Phillip Cocu explains thinking behind Derby County letting Jack Marriott out on loan – Derbyshire Live

Derby County boss Phillip Cocu believes a loan move for Jack Marriott can help the striker to regain his form.

Marriott has joined Sheffield Wednesday for the rest of the season although the Rams have a recall clause in January.

The 26-year-old also signed a one-year extension to his contract before going out on loan.

Fans were disappointed the club allowed Marriott to depart without bringing in another striker.

When asked about Marriott, Cocu said: “It (the loan) had nothing to do with if a new player would come in, we knew Kazim (Colin Kazim-Richards) was coming in.

“I think for Jack it is the best solution for him to get back in the form and the way he can play, and also for the club I think it was the best at this moment. That’s why we did it.”

Marriott endured a frustrating stop-start season last season but he had figured in all six matches this season, four starts and two as a substitute, scoring one goal.
