Jordan Brown has caught the eye over the past two years with his consistency and versatility, and he is now a regular member of Derby County’s Under-23 squad.
Whether playing anywhere across the backline or even in midfield, Brown is a reliable performer who played 24 times in all competitions for the title-winning Under-18s in the 2018/19 season, while he also stepped up to play five times for the Under-23s.
He scored once and recorded two assists as Justin Walker’s side stormed to the Under-18 Premier League title.
Brown, who can play at right-back, left-back or in central midfield, enjoyed a positive 2019/20 season which ended in him making his first-team debut.
He made 28 appearances for the Under-23s, of which 24 were starts, and netted three goals and three assists along the way. He was also eligible to play for the Under-19s in the UEFA Youth League and appeared in all six games, scoring once and claiming a single assist.
The closing weeks of the 2019/20 campaign saw him step up to the first-team squad and appear as an unused substitute on a handful of occasions, while he also came off the bench for the latter stages of Derby’s Sky Bet Championship fixture at West Bromwich Albion to make his senior bow.
