‘Such a shame’, ‘Good bit of business’ – Many Derby County fans split as club strike £700,000 deal



Swansea City have signed 20-year-old Morgan Whittaker from Derby County, which has drawn an interesting reaction from many fans of the East Midlands club. 

According to reports, the forward has joined the Swans in a deal worth in the region of £700,000, while the Welsh club have announced he’s penned a four-and-a-half-year deal at the Liberty Stadium.

A product of Derby’s academy system, Whittaker impressed with the age-group sides and was handed his debut with the first team last season.

32 appearances have followed but the forward has not been wholly convincing and scored just twice for the senior side.

Whittaker is capable of playing as a striker or on the left but has predominantly played as a right-winger for the Rams.

In a statement on the club website, Derby thanked the 20-year-old “for his efforts on and off the pitch, after supporting the club’s ‘Stay Safe. Stay Fit. Stay Connected.’ food bank, and wish him well in the future”.
