Derby County

Paul Warne must sign ‘unbelievable’ Craig Forsyth upgrade this summer, he’ll cost nothing

In order to prepare for their comeback to the Championship, Derby County will need to recruit a “unbelievable” upgrade for the seasoned Craig Forsyth.

Derby has returned to the Championship two years following their relegation.

On Saturday, they defeated Carlisle United 2-0 to clinch their fate, which prompted to wild celebrations on the field at halftime.

Paul Warne will start making arrangements for the upcoming campaign, and Pride Park should see a hectic summer as the contracts of twelve players are about to expire.

A number of players, notably left-back Craig Forsyth, who has been a tremendous asset to the football team, may be saying farewell to the Rams.

Craig Forsyth’s employment status

In July 2013, Derby acquired Forsyth from Watford for an estimated £150,000.

According to Transfermarkt, the seasoned Scotsman has amassed 340 appearances in black and white, with 10 goals and 29 assists.

It will be a sad day when Forsyth leaves the club, which could happen this summer. He is a steady player who is a fan favorite at Pride Park because of his longevity and magical left foot.

The 35-year-old’s contract expires in June, and by moving up to the Championship, his earnings might be better utilized by an upgrade.

Giving the veteran a contract, even one that is only temporary, doesn’t seem feasible given his age, injury history, and second-tier play.Darren Ferguson, Manager of Peterborough United and Harrison Burrows of Peterborough United with the EFL Trophy after the Bristol Street Motors Tro...

Derby County should sign Harrison Burrows as a Craig Forsyth upgrade

Harrison Burrows, who had a tremendous season at Peterborough United, will be in high demand this summer.

Despite switching from being a winger to an offensive left-back this season, the 22-year-old has still been a menace in the final third, with six goals and 14 assists in League One.

Just one Derby standoutIn the third tier, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing has provided more assists (16) than Burrows, and Darren Ferguson has praised his “unbelievable” effect down the left.

An unidentified Championship club made a bid for the young player in January, but Peterborough turned it down. With the Englishman’s contract expiring in June, interest in him will only grow.

The Rams should sign left-back after he puts up such ridiculous stats, like a goal and an assist against Derby.

His ability to play as a wing-back or in a four-man defense makes him an excellent match for their interchanging system.

Burrows would contend with Louie Sibley, the current starter, for a spot in the starting lineup, providing Derby with two strong left-handed options heading into the Championship.

It will be challenging for the Rams to convince him to sign, of course, given the majority of the second tier is searching for a deal, but he is a player they should be considering as a long-term Forsyth replacement.
