Derby County Cancels U.S. Summer Tour Plans

derby county badge Derby County Cancels U.S. Summer Tour PlansThe number of Premier League teams heading to the United States this summer on preseason tours isn’t too impressive thus far. First, Aston Villa announced they may have to skip their American tour if they qualify for the Intertoto Cup. Now Derby County has said that it has canceled its plans to head stateside and will be touring the Netherlands instead.

This leaves West Ham United as the only confirmed Premier League side definitely heading to North America. Liverpool, it has been reported but not confirmed, are also planning on visiting.

So far, Chelsea and Spurs have announced their playing friendlies in Asia this summer and will not be coming to the United States.

Thanks to The Scout for the tip.
