Derby County striker Bobby Duncan looks set to leave the club this summer, according to an update from journalist Pete O’Rourke.
The Lowdown: Duncan struggles at Derby
The 20-year-old joined the Rams on a three-year deal last summer, but has struggled to make his mark at the club.
Duncan made seven appearances for Derby’s Under-23 side, failing to score a single goal, and didn’t play once for the first team in the Championship.
Should Derby sign Ravel Morrison?
The Latest: Striker set for exit
According to O’Rourke on Twitter on Tuesday, Duncan is in Denmark looking to complete a summer move to Vejle Boldklub.
It isn’t stated whether or not the potential move would be temporary or permanent, but given Derby’s use of him, it could well be the latter.

The Verdict: Career stalling
Duncan’s career has stalled badly after being seen as such a bright emerging talent at Liverpool, leaving on bad terms to join Fiorentina and not kicking on ever since.
For his sake, a move away from Derby could do him the world of good, with the youngster in need of playing regular football and finding his feet again – an inferior league could help him find his form.
His exit could hopefully generate some modicum of transfer funds for Wayne Rooney if it is a permanent deal, should the Rams’ transfer embargo be loosened.
