It seems that academy graduate Jamie Hanson has played his final game for Championship side Derby County according to reports.

It has been a promising last few days of the transfer window for Derby County.

Martyn Waghorn arrives to fill the void left by Matej Vydra’s departure to Burnley, Fikayo Tomori has added some depth at the back while Scott Malone, included in the Championship’s Team of the Year in 2017, could finally be the left-back they have been looking for.

But amid all the incomings, it seems that one player is on his way out of Pride Park.

 

According to the Mail (live blog, 8.43am), Jamie Hanson is set to sign for League One club Oxford United on a permanent basis.

The 22-year-old midfielder has spent his entire professional career at Derby except for a short loan spell at Wigan Athletic last year. Hanson even signed a new contract until 2020 back in April.

But it seems that this counts for nothing with the Mail adding that Frank Lampard, who replaced Gary Rowett in the dugout over the summer, prefers other options in the central midfield position.

Hanson did not feature in Derby’s Championship opener away at Reading last Friday and made just seven substitute appearances in the league in 2017/18, failing to make a single start.

He will join an Oxford side battered 4-0 by Barnsley in their first League One fixture on Saturday.
