Derby should sign this player who could become the new Aaron Mooy or Jackson Irvine



The success of Australian international midfield duo Aaron Mooy and Jackson Irvine suddenly has everyone diverting their attention towards the Australian leagues.

Aaron Mooy has been on a season long loan at Huddersfield Town and earned a place in the Championship Team of the Season for his fantastic displays.

The Manchester City star could now be set for a season in the Premier League after dictating the midfield in the second tier.

And his international team mate Jackson Irvine has also been impressing in the Championship since sealing a switch to Burton Albion from Kilmarnock last summer.

The 10 goal midfielder has inspired Burton to an unlikely survival and could be set for a major move this summer.

With Australians in demand now, Derby County could look to sign their own Socceroo and they must look at Riley McGree.

The Adelaide United youngster is making big strides in the A-League and could earn a move to England.

Celtic have previously expressed an interest in the box-to-box midfielder who has been a shining light in Adelaide’s faltering team recently.

The 18-year-old has already earned his first call up to the senior Australia squad after impressing with energetic midfield performances.

Derby could benefit from having that sort of youthful engine in midfield and McGree does not shy away from a tackle.

The tenacious midfielder has all the attributes to adapt to English football and follow in the footsteps of Jackson Irvine and Aaron Mooy as his stock continues to rise and he continues to improve as a player.

Derby fans – would McGree be a good signing? Do you like the sound of his playing style? Let us know below…
