We are just over a month into the Championship season, and Derby midfielder Mason Mount already looks to be pivotal to The Rams’ hopes of success this season.
The 19-year-old has already bagged two goals and an assist in seven games for Frank Lampard’s team, as they sit in seventh place in the Championship table.
The worrying news for Derby fans is that Mount’s parent club, Chelsea, may recall the youngster in January if his good form continues. The London club have done that in the past, and could well be tempted in doing so again, particularly if they progress into the latter stages of the Europa League, and require greater squad depth.
We asked if you believed the club could keep hold of the 19-year-old, and these were the results:
Derby fans are clearly confident that they can keep hold of the loan player until the end of the season, which will be fundamental to their promotion bid.
Perhaps people believe that there is no better place for an aspiring Chelsea player than to be under the tutelage of a Chelsea legend.
