Macdonald, 21, is yet to make his senior debut for Derby County and could be making a move away this summer. He has been named on the bench a total of 10 times across all competitions but his only experience of senior football came on loan with Barrow in the 2017/18 National League campaign. He played in 21 games across all competitions, scoring one goal along the way.

The vast majority of Macdonald’s game times has come with Derby County’s Under-23s side. He has played 57 times for the Under-23s, scoring three goals and providing four assists in the process.

Now, with Blackpool keen to strike a deal, it awaits to be seen if Derby sanction a move for Macdonald before the end of the transfer window on September 2nd.
