Derby County striker Bobby Duncan’s proposed move to Danish Superliga side Vejle Boldklub has broken down, according to The Athletic.
The Merseyside-born striker seemed set for his fourth move in as many summers, but the report states that terms were not agreed.
An exciting prospect at Liverpool’s academy, the striker rather controversially left for Italian club Fiorentina in 2019. However, after just a year in Italy, he arrived back in England, but this time he joined Derby County.
Since returning to England, Duncan’s sole first-team appearance came during Derby’s 2-0 loss to Chorley in the FA Cup.
In the past week, Duncan has engaged in transfer talks with Vejle Boldklub of Danish football’s top-tier.
But the latest update suggests that the move is now off with Derby’s club officials reported to be furious, as Duncan’s departure would have cut around £3,000 of the weekly wage bill.
The young striker has struggled to find a permanent home in the early stages of his youth career and those difficulties have continued into his time with Derby.
It seems that Duncan is someone that Derby are keen to move on – as a result of the situation they are in as opposed to having a desire to sell him – and it is vital that he finds something more than a temporary home.
Duncan has shown excellent promise at youth-team level and now he is in a position where he has to display that in the professional game.
He is still young, energetic, and possesses an eye for goal, all excellent attributes for a young striker trying to pave a way into regular first-team football.
