Derby County full-back Jayden Bogle has set his sights on an even better season during the 2019/20 Sky Bet Championship campaign, which kicks off for the Rams in 12 days' time.

Bogle, who only broke into the first-team squad at the start of last season, made 50 appearances for the Rams in the 2018/19 campaign.

Aged only 18, he went on to record the most assists by a teenager in the Championship as well as topping Derby's assists chart.

He recorded nine assists and contributed two goals.

Those are impressive figures for a player in their debut season in professional football and he already has his eyes set on more this time around.

“In some of the time I had off over the summer, I reflected on the season I had and looked at what I achieved,” he told RamsTV.

“I also looked ahead to see what I can achieve this season as well so that’s the main focus for me. Last season was a big success but this year, I hope that it can be even bigger.”

The youngster played in a number of pre-season fixtures for the Rams last summer and was rewarded with his first start in the Carabao Cup First Round victory against Oldham Athletic.

He grasped the opportunity with both hands and believes that opportunities are there for the youngsters at the football club.

“It’s shown that there is a lot of opportunity at this club through the age groups,” he said. “If you work hard, you will get your chance.

“With the new gaffer coming in, he took a lot of young lads away on pre-season so it shows the opportunities are there but you have to work hard and then they will come.”

With former PSV Eindhoven boss Phillip Cocu now at the helm at Pride Park, and with a track record to developing youth, Bogle believes this could be a big season for the club.

“It’s a similar style of play,” he said of the manager’s philosophy. “All managers have their different styles but they are similar and it worked well with us.

“With a few little changes this season, maybe we can go one step further.”
