Derby County goalkeeper Stephen Bywater's move to Tottenham has fallen through, BBC Radio Derby has learned.

Spurs were interested in signing the 27-year-old as back-up for Heurelho Gomes and Ben Alnwick.

Rams boss Paul Jewell said: "I got a phone call to say for whatever reason the deal had fallen through but it was nothing to do with Stephen.

"I can't say I'm disappointed because I think he's looked very sharp this season and done well."

The former West Ham goalkeeper spent the end of last season on loan at Ipswich Town.
