Derby fans react as Andy King signs on loan

Derby County have announced the signing of Leicester’s Andy King on loan for the remainder of the season as Frank Lampard adds further experience to the ranks – the Rams previously signed Chelsea legend Ashley Cole on a free transfer in January.

The 30-year-old midfielder has a Premier League winner’s medal to his name having made 25 appearances for the Foxes in their dreamland 2015/16 campaign and will bring goals from midfield to his new side.

Having won the title under Claudio Ranieri three seasons ago, the 50-cap Wales international became the first player in the Premier League era to have been crowned champion in the top three divisions with the same club.

King is expected to provide competition for Tom Huddlestone, Mason Mount and Harry Wilson and could have walked straight into the starting XI had the first of the aforementioned trio sealed a loan move to Udinese on deadline day. That deal fell through, though, and now he will have to work for a spot in Lampard’s midfield.
