Derby County fans react on Twitter to signing of Marcus Olsson

Derby County have completed the signing of Blackburn Rovers defender Marcus Olsson.

Marcus Olsson has linked up with Derby County on a three-and-a-half year deal, signing from Blackburn for an undisclosed fee.

With Craig Forsyth out injured until the end of the season, Paul Clement has been searching for left-back cover this month, and Olsson arrives at Derby in the last week of the transfer window.

The 27-year-old, a twice capped Swedish international, has played for Blackburn since 2012. He has played 114 times for the club, and has 92 games of Championship experience to his name, and arrives at the iPro Stadium to shore up the Rams’ defence in the second half of the season.

The Rams need to stop they recent slide, having lost form and dropped from first to fifth in the space of five games.

They have no win since December, and Olsson will bring further Football League know-how to arguably the strongest squad in the entire second division.

Following the confirmation of Olsson’s signing, Derby fans took to Twitter to react to the left-back’s arrival, with many pleased with the transfer.
