Derby County in line to receive financial boost if Max Lowe seals permanent Sheffield United exit

Published

on

Derby County will receive a financial boost if Max Lowe is sold by Sheffield United this summer, according to a report from the Derby Telegraph.

The Rams included a sell-on clause in the deal which saw the left-back make the move to Bramall Lane in 2020.

After making eight appearances in the Premier League for the Blades during the 2020/21 campaign, Lowe was loaned out to Derby’s arch-rivals Nottingham Forest last year.

During his time at the City Ground, Lowe helped the Reds secure promotion to the top-flight by featuring on 21 occasions in the second-tier.

According to The Star, Forest are interested in signing Lowe on a permanent deal for the Blades this summer as they prepare for life in the Premier League.

However, the Blades could potentially try to fend off interest from the Reds by offering the full-back a new long-term contract.

Lowe’s current deal is set to run until 2024 and thus Forest or another potential suitor would have to submit a sizeable offer in order to convince United to part ways with the defender.

Derby will be aiming to secure an immediate return to the Championship next year after suffering relegation to the third-tier last season.

The Verdict

Derby will be hoping that Lowe will end up moving on to pastures new this summer as his departure from the Blades could provide them with some money that they could use to bolster their squad.

With the transfer window set to open on June 10th, the Rams will be hoping that prospective owner Chris Kirchner will also be able to provide the funds that they will need to assemble a team which is capable of achieving a great deal of success in the third-tier.

Having overseen some impressive performances in the Championship last season, there is no reason why Derby manager Wayne Rooney cannot help the club bring a feel-good factor back to Pride Park.

By nailing his transfer recruitment, Rooney will fancy his chances of guiding Derby to a promising start to the 2022/23 campaign.
