Andre Wisdom needed little introduction when he arrived at Pride Park Stadium in the summer of 2017.
The 25-year-old left a lasting impression after he starred on loan from Liverpool during the 2013/14 season, and he picked up where he left off by helping Derby to another play-off campaign last term.
Early in the season, Wisdom showcased his defensive qualities at right-back as a watertight backline propelled The Rams into promotion contention.
Later on, he displayed his attacking prowess from right wing-back, most notably with two assists during the memorable 3-1 win at home against Cardiff City.
Wisdom arrived from Liverpool after nearly a decade at Anfield during which he made 22 appearances for the Reds, but he gained most of his experience on loan away from the club.
Along with Derby, he also spent time with West Bromwich Albion and Norwich City in the Premier League, whilst he joined up with Austrian Bundesliga side Red Bull Salzburg for the 2016/17 campaign.
He won the first silverware of his career out in Austria, as Salzburg secured the league and cup double.
Wisdom also has experience at international level, having represented England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level. He was named in the Team of the Tournament after winning the Under-17 European Championship in 2010.
