Derby County head coach Paul Warne  shortlist 3 best midfielders including long time target…

Derby County will be in need of several midfield signings this summer, and one rumoured to be on the radar is Barnsley’s Herbie Kane.

Derby County are heading for the Championship and while additions will be needed across the board, the midfield department is one that looks set for significant change.

Herbie Kane was linked in a Patreon report from Alan Nixon over the weekend, while loan star Ebou Adams is wanted on a permanent basis following his starring stint away from Cardiff City.

With Max Bird off to Bristol City and Conor Hourihane, Korey Smith, Liam Thompson and Darren Robinson all yet to be tied down to new deals, the Rams would be wise to consider further midfield targets.

Here, we pick out three midfielders Derby County should keep in mind for this summer…

Huddersfield TownHuddersfield Town may well lose some influential performers following their drop to League One and as Derby County rise to the Championship, the Rams could do worse than looking at the Terriers for some possible signings.

London-born midfielder Kasumu may well be viewed as someone who could be key in getting the club promoted but it would not be a surprise if he was subject to interest this summer.

He’s under contract until 2025 so would require a transfer fee. Despite their stronger financial position, Derby may favour a cheaper deal.

One cheap addition that could be of interest is Everton midfielder Lewis Warrington.

His step up to Championship football with Plymouth Argyle was one that didn’t go as planned following his fantastic time at Fleetwood Town but at a permanent home where he gets regular game time, the 21-year-old could maximise his exciting potential.

Warrington, who made his Premier League debut last weekend, is out of contract and could benefit from a move elsewhere.

Last but not least is another out of contract midfielder in the form of Bristol City.

As Bird heads for Ashton Gate, Derby County could certainly benefit from taking one of the Robins’ midfielders back. Williams is a good age at 27 and his Championship experience could make him a welcome addition to the ranks.

He can operate as a central or defensive midfielder and will be among this summer’s smarter signings if he is to leave City.
