Mason Mount will be spending the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Derby County and will be managed by former Chelsea legend Frank Lampard alongside with former Blues’ Youth Team coach Jody Morris.
The 19-year-old, who spent last season on loan in Eredivisie with Vitesse Arnhem, told Derby County’s official website: “Being at Chelsea and playing in midfield, I’ve looked up to Frank Lampard throughout my life and career.
“He’s been a big role model for me and I’ve worked with Jody before, he was a great player so I have a great relationship with them both and I’m looking forward to working with them. It was a big pull, but the club overall is a massive pull. The fans, there is always a massive following at every game”.
“The club is huge and I want to take them into the Premier League, that’s where they belong. It’s a lovely training ground and I played at the stadium a couple of years ago for Chelsea, so it’s a great set-up.”
He’s been also interviewed on Chelsea’s official website and wrote on Instagram: “Very excited to start a new chapter in my career, to join such a big club with great fans and history”.
