‘Smart addition’ – Many Derby County fans react as player gets set for medical



Nathan Byrne is set to have a medical at Derby County this afternoon ahead of a move from Wigan Athletic, as per the Telegraph’s John Percy.

Derby are on the lookout for a new right-sided full-back, with Jayden Bogle leaving the club to join Sheffield United last week.

Bogle, along with left-sided full-back Max Lowe, joined the Blades in a double deal worth around £15million, leaving Phillip Cocu with a need to replace him.

According to John Percy of the Telegraph, Wigan Athletic’s Nathan Byrne is close to joining Derby, with a medical scheduled for later today.

Byrne registered eight assists in 39 Championship appearances last term, and is one of the best attacking full-backs in the division.

The 28-year-old is an accomplished full-back for this level, and is clearly a player who can bomb forward and create chances for his teammates.

Byrne looks to be a like-for-like replacement for Bogle, and due to Wigan’s precarious financial situaiton, Derby will be acquiring his services for a cut-price deal.
