Derby: Rams linked with move for Stephen O’Donnell - Derby County Transfer Rumours

Derby County are reportedly among a number of Championship clubs interested in signing Scotland international Stephen O’Donnell this summer.

The Lowdown: O’Donnell impresses for Scotland

The 29-year-old is currently playing at Euro 2020, impressing in the Tartan Army’s 0-0 draw with England on Friday night as he won two tackles and helped his team to a clean sheet, shacking Raheem Sterling throughout.

The right-back bounced back from a below-par showing against the Czech Republic in Scotland’s opener, showing quality and consistency out wide at Wembley four days later.

The Verdict: Shrewd summer addition

O’Donnell could be a solid acquisition for Derby, possessing a wealth of experience (377 club career appearances) and representing his country at a major tournament.

While he might not necessarily be the most flamboyant footballer, he is a safe pair of hands, averaging 1.3 tackles and 1.4 interceptions per game in the Scottish Premiership last season.

O’Donnell’s ability to play at both right-back and right wing-back could also appeal to Wayne Rooney as the Derby manager looks to build a side capable of pushing towards the play-off positions in 2021/22.
