‘Love that’, ‘Be a bit harsh’ – Many Derby fans react to update on deadline day signings ahead of Rotherham clash

Derby County will reportedly be able to name their deadline day signings in the squad for their rearranged game against Rotherham United tonight, which has drawn a mixed response from fans of the East Midlands club.

Derby’s game against the Millers at the New York Stadium was postponed yesterday due to a waterlogged pitch and is set to be played tonight.

According to The Athletic’s Ryan Conway, that means that both clubs will be able to include players in their squad that were previously unavailable due to registration timing issues.

Deadline day signings will, therefore, be available for tonight’s game, which will significantly boost the number of options available to Wayne Rooney.

Rotherham made just one deadline day signing, bringing in Middlesbrough midfielder Lewis Wing on loan, while Monday was much busier for Derby.

The East Midlands club signed five players on loan before the deadline, adding Manchester United’s Teden Mengi, Manchester City’s Patrick Roberts, Rangers’ George Edmundson, Everton’s Beni Baningime, and Stoke City’s Lee Gregory to Rooney’s senior squad.

With all five now able to feature in tonight’s game, it’s going to be interesting to see how the Rams boss approaches it – having named a matchday squad before the game was called off yesterday.

The subject has proved a talking point among fans of the club, with many taking to Twitter to voice their thoughts.
