Former Arsenal and Chelsea talents Alban Bunjaku and Isak Ssewankambo score for Derby County under-21s

The two Derby County players are knocking the door of the first-team.

Yesterday saw Derby County's under-21 side defeat their Wolves counterparts.

They came through the game 2-0 in what was a decent but tense affair.

But what was truly interesting about the game is the players who scored the goals. The two scorers were Alban Bunjaku and Isak Ssewankambo - two players who once dreamed of playing for Arsenal and Chelsea respectively.

Bunjaku was a highly rated member of that Arsenal youth team - and when they lost him to Spanish side Sevilla in 2012 they were rightly upset.

The 19-year-old left Sevilla in 2013 before plying his trade for Slavia Prague. But he joined up with Derby in the summer and has impressed in the under-21 side.

Ssewankambo arrived at Chelsea in 2012 from Swedish outfit Angereds - the same team that had produced fellow Chelsea youth teamers Amin Affane and Anjur Osmanovic.

A Swedish under-21 international, he left for NAC Breda in Holland in the summer before heading back to England as a converted right-back in January.

Both were once hot prospects in two of the biggest academies in England. Now they look like being real prospects at Derby, and will hope to soon be in first-team action at the iPro Stadium.
