Derby County are surely contenders for having the best transfer deadline day.
The Rams completed no less than five new signings on the final day of the January transfer window meaning that the club are firmly on track to kick on during the second half of the season.
After a disappointing start to the campaign, there’s plenty of work to do.
The last, and arguably most exciting signing that was completed on deadline day was a move to bring Patrick Roberts to the club.
The Manchester City man arrived at Pride Park in the final moments of the window after cutting short his loan spell with Championship rivals Middlesbrough.
While a lack of recent match action may mean it takes time to adapt to life at Pride Park, fans are certainly excited by the new arrival.
Here’s what a group of fans had to say about the deal.
Good luck paddy, some player on his day, got a gem derby fans

Can't complain, Lampard had that pull with us. It's nice knowing we have a gaffer with the capability to attract players 😁

Great player in there but a terrible attitude and work load. Hope it works out for Derby but don't think it will.

Decent player… Once he masters team work, his attitude, passing, shooting, crossing, free kicks. A classic he a city player so he's gotta be good. Hope he does well but not no loss
