Derby County

EFL club casting eyes over former Derby County player



Doncaster Rovers are running the rule over Cameron Cresswell, according to the Doncaster Free Press.

The young forward is a free agent after leaving Derby County at the end of his contract following the end of last season, meaning that he’s available to move on on a free transfer.

As a result the 21-year-old is now training with Richie Wellens’ squad and even featured in the club’s pre-season friendlies against Bradford City and Wakefield AFC.

Cresswell certainly made an impression for Derby last term after establishing himself as one of the club’s most potent young stars.

The striker was the club’s top goalscorer at under-23 level and finished the season with a flourish after scoring eight goals in his final seven appearances for the club.

This led to him making his first senior appearances for Derby’s first team against Chorley in the FA Cup and then against Stoke City for his EFL debut.

Now, he’ll be hoping that he can use those attributes to earn a contract at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Doncaster Rovers are preparing for a big season as they target a potential top six finish in League One.

After finishing 14th last term the Yorkshire side will be hoping for a significant improvement and Cresswell will certainly be hoping that he can show himself as someone who could help them in their play-off push in the campaign ahead.

The verdict

What an opportunity this is for Cameron Cresswell.

The young forward is a real talent and this could be an ideal chance for him to show his true quality and kickstart his playing career.

Doncaster Rovers would be a great place to try and find his feet in the EFL, but make no mistake, Richie Wellens’ side will be hoping to have a big season in League One.

If Cresswell can prove himself in League One then he’ll certainly be backing himself to play a key role this term.
