David Nugent wanted by Sheffield United, but does he still figure in Frank Lampard’s squad?

Sheffield United seem to be putting together a bid for Rams striker David Nugent.

Nugent is 33 years old but is still a decent Championship striker, but with the arrival of Frank Lampard, his days in the starting line up for Derby County could be limited.

Lampard has already freshened up the midfield, bringing in younger players to complement the established players in the squad and is thought to want to bring in more youth in the striking areas.

Sheffield United are eager to bring in striker options before the transfer window closed in early August, so a deal may well be on the cards for Nugent. With nearly 600 senior appearances for clubs varying from Bury, Preston, Portsmouth, Leicester and Middlesbrough, he has a wealth of experience and maybe the best option for all concerned.

  • It could turn out to be a crackin signing if we fail on our bid for Waghorn. I know Nugent is at the wrong side of 30 but the experience he’s got could be the one who could make a partnership with either Billy Sharp or Leon Clarke. The chances missed on goal was the only reason we didn’t get to the automatic promotion places or the play-offs but either way Waghorn or Nugent could be a blessing in disguise.
