Derby County today confirmed that two promising youngsters had joined their club on a season long loan deal. Mason Mount has signed from manager Frank Lampard’s former club Chelsea, while Harry Wilson has completed a deal that will see him move from Champions League finalists Liverpool.
The Rams had been expected to use Lampard’s former club Chelsea this summer, with the former England international expected to call upon them to help improve on last season’s performance.
Derby finished sixth in the Sky Bet Championship, but were beaten in the Play-Off Semi Finals by eventual winners Fulham.
Gary Rowett has since left the club, with Frank Lampard being given his first managerial role at Pride Park.
Derby County fans were quick to take to Twitter after their double loan signing was announced. Here is a look at what some of them had to say:
This Derby County supporter is delighted with the blend of experience and youth that the club currently have.
One word, simple yet effective. Incredible.
It seems that this fan got a little bit too excited after the deal was announced.
Many Derby County fans are now speculating that the two new signings have left the door open to Matej Vydra to leave the club.
