Duane Holmes makes deadline day transfer to Derby County

#TeamPO were involved in a summer deadline day transfer as Duane Holmes moved from Scunthorpe to Derby County on a three-year deal.

The American-born midfielder made 94 appearances in total for the League 1 side, scoring ten goals last season as he helped them towards a play-off finish.

Moving up a division to play with Derby, he will now be under the management of Chelsea legend Frank Lampard as he hopes to lead the Rams to promotion. Lampard told their club website, ‘[Duane] is an exciting talent and he can play in numerous attacking positions as well. He certainly fits into the profile for us in signing players at a good age for both the present and also the future’.

Everyone at Platinum One congratulates Duane on the move and wishes him the best of luck for the coming season.
