Lampard Raids Chelsea & Liverpool in Double Swoop
Derby County manager Frank Lampard has returned to his Premier League roots to secure loan deals for Chelsea’s Mason Mount and Liverpool’s Harry Wilson.
The highly-rated young duo will both spend the season at Pride Park under the guidance of the former Blues favourite.
Midfielder Mount, 19, scored an impressive 14 goals on loan at Eredivisie side Vitesse Arnhem last term, while 21-year-old Wales international Wilson netted seven times in a short stint with Hull City.
“I’m delighted to get both of these deals done and add players of their quality and calibre to the squad,” Lampard explained to the official Derby website.
“I know Mason really well from my Chelsea links and I have also watched him play in their very successful youth teams.”
On Wilson, Lampard added: “Harry brings incredible quality and hunger to the table here and he showed that last year while he was on loan at Hull. He’s a full international too and he has a real desire to come here and improve.”
