LATEST UPDATE : Chris Wilder hails Derby County transfer ‘one of the club’s best deals’ as contract decision looms

The most recent Derby County news from DerbyshireLive, as contract worries develop ahead of the summer transfer market.
Chris Wilder has stated that former Derby County defender Jayden Bogle will stay at Sheffield United despite the fact that the four-year deal he signed when joining from the Rams is expiring.

Bogle joined the Blades in a double swoop during the summer 2020 transfer window, alongside Max Lowe.

While Lowe’s season was cut short by an injury in February, Bogle has appeared 101 times for United, including 34 this season.

According to the Sheffield Star, the Blades have the option to extend Bogle’s contract by another year, with Wilder expressing confidence in the 23-year-old’s future and calling the original transfer “one of the club’s best deals.”
When asked if he sees Bogle as part of United’s future, Wilder replied, “Yes, hopefully. He has been great. When we brought him and Max into the facility, we already knew a lot about them. In terms of numbers, it was probably one of the best deals the club has made.

“I believe it ended up being less than £4 million for both. So having a player who is the highest scoring defender in the Premier League for us is fantastic, and his total performance this season has been terrific. “It [his future] will take care of itself.”

Initially, some reports reported that the Blades paid Derby £12 million for the pair, although Wilder later suggested the amount was far lower, ranging between £7-8 million.

The transaction occurred in the closing weeks of Phillip Cocu’s ill-fated tenure at Pride Park, just before Wayne Rooney took control against the backdrop of looming financial clouds.
