On this Day – Thursday 31st August 2006

Derby playmaker Inigo Idiakez signed on transfer deadline day which coincided with Sir Clive Woodward’s decision to step down as technical director – although he pledged to continue helping in a consultancy capacity. The previous season’s transfer deadline day had seen Harry Redknapp snap up Polish international midfielder Kamil Kosowski and Marcelo Tejera, a Uruguayan who would never kick a ball in anger for the club. Twelve months previously the deadline-day signing was centre-back Andreas Jakabsson from Brondby for £1m.
