Derby County should try and give Jonjoe Kenny a platform to grow

Derby County should try and give Jonjoe Kenny a platform to grow

Derby County could do with bringing in a defender at some point this month as this is one area that the Rams are most vulnerable in. 

The Rams will have their sights set firmly on securing promotion to the Premier League under Frank Lampard, but they may not be able to do this without bringing in another player. And, one player who has shown plenty of quality and could be one of the standout performers in the Championship is Everton’s Jonjoe Kenny, who is currently valued at £4.5 million by Transfermarkt, and so perhaps Lampard should consider strengthening in defensive areas.

Kenny has double honours with England and won plenty of praise from pundits for his displays at the Under 20 World Cup where he was one of England’s standout players. The 21-year-old is a consistent performer with a great temperament, he rarely gets beaten and has the ability to play at the heart of the defence too. Although, it doesn’t look as if he will be a part of the Toffees’ first team this season as he lacked experience at times in the last campaign.

The youngster looks to be a star in the making and has a bright future ahead of him. So, Derby County shouldn’t waste any time in bringing in defensive reinforcements, as the versatile Evertonian could use all of his top-flight experience to help ensure promotion this season.

Indeed, the Rams have already made use of the loan system so far this summer and could look to do the same again, as the loan window shuts at the end of this month. Therefore, moving for a promising defender that has proven his worth in the Premier League could definitely work wonders for Derby County.
