Jeff Hendrick is looking forward to getting back to business with Championship outfit Derby County.

Derby County midfielder Jeff Hendrick has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his excitement ahead of the new season.

The 23-year-old is back in England after his holiday, and he is looking forward to pre-season training with the rest of the Rams’ squad.

New season, new promises

Hendrick has been on the books of Derby his entire professional career, and he will continue to be a key player in the 2015-16 campaign.

The Rams narrowly failed to finish in the top six of the Championship last season, and they will once again be aiming for automatic promotion to the Premier League under new head coach Paul Clement.

Hendrick, a Republic of Ireland international, scored seven goals and created 46 chances in 41 Championship appearances in 2014-15.

Hendrick had a pass accuracy of 82% and a shot accuracy of 49%, and won 21 headers, 29 dribbles and 42 tackles.
