Derby County midfielder George Thorne won't rush back from knee injury

Derby County midfielder George Thorne insists that he won't rush back from a serious knee injury.

Derby County new boy George Thorne has insisted that he won't rush back from a serious knee injury this season.

After playing for the Rams on loan from West Bromwich Albion last season, 21-year-old Thorne made the switch to the iPro Stadium permanent over the summer but then ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in a pre-season friendly.

"Everyone knows you can't rush these injuries and I'll be back when I am ready and it feels right," Thorne, who was ruled out for nine months, told the club website.

"That may be sooner, but it could be later – it really depends how things pan out.

"I've had a successful operation and a good few weeks of rehabilitation but I have to take it each day and week as it comes."

The central midfielder put pen to paper on a four-year contract with the Championship club.
