Derby County finished 5th in the Championship this season, and ended up narrowly missing out in the play-offs, losing 3-2 on aggregate to Hull City.
The Rams have some real talent in their squad, and the only reason that they didn’t win promotion was a run of inconsistency that saw Derby drop from the top of the Sky Bet Championship table into the play-off places.
Derby have some highly rated players in their squad, with a whole lot of Premier League experience. This is coupled with the young talents breaking through such as Jamie Hanson, who has gained a large amount of first team experience this season.
It’s expected that Derby will be fighting for promotion again next season, after 3 consecutive seasons in which they’ve missed out. Of course, any team that goes up to the Premier League must invest in their squad to ensure survival, but which players already in the Derby squad are good enough for the Premier League?
