Pacey winger Duane Holmes joined Derby County from Scunthorpe United in the dying hours of Deadline Day in August 2018. The 23-year-old midfielder signed a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
Born in Columbus, Georgia, United States, he moved to England aged four. Holmes joined the Academy set up at Huddersfield Town aged nine and went on to make his debut for the club aged 18 against Hull City.
Holmes scored five goals for the Terriors over a three-year period, and following loan spells with Yeovil Town and Bury, he joined Scunthorpe Town on a permanent basis in 2016.
In his two years with the Iron, he netted 12 times in 94 appearances in all competitions. His pace and trickery led a number of clubs to chase the winger during the summer of 2018 where Derby County won the battle for his signature.
