Derby County want to sign Kristian Pedersen on loan from Birmingham City in the summer transfer window, according to The Mirror (Transfer Live blog, 21:37pm, Saturday, July 28, 2018).

It has been reported that Derby manager Frank Lampard is interested in securing the services of the 23-year-old, who can operate as a left-back or as a left-winger.

The former Denmark Under-21 international joined Birmingham from Union Berlin earlier this summer for a transfer fee reported by The Mirror (Transfer Live blog, 21:37pm, Saturday, July 28, 2018) to be worth £1.5 million.

According to The Mirror (Transfer Live blog, 21:37pm, Saturday, July 28, 2018), Pedersen’s future at Birmingham is in limbo due to a transfer embargo on the Championship club.

Good signing for Derby County?

Pedersen is a very talented and promising young player, and his versatility to play as a left-back or as a left-winger is also very attractive.

If Birmingham are unable to play the Dane, then it would make sense for them to loan him out.

With Derby aiming to challenge for the Championship playoffs this season, Pedersen would be a good addition to the team.
