Rams reject Feilhaber bid from Maccabi Tel Aviv

Derby have revealed they have rejected another bid from Maccabi Tel Aviv for American midfielder Benny Feilhaber.

The Rams allowed the USA international to speak to the Israeli club but chairman Adam Pearson confirmed they were unable to match the Premier League club's valuation.

'Maccabi Tel Aviv showed an interest in Benny and we allowed him the chance to speak to them,' said Pearson.

'However, we have now rejected their latest bid and have called Benny back to Derby.

'There is a lot of interest in Benny in the MLS in the States and it is something that is likely to be pursued, therefore we feel it is in the best interests of the club and the player to get him back with us.'
