Lee Buchanan is another exciting player to have progressed through the ranks at Derby County and into the first-team set-up.
The left-footed defender, who can play at left-back or centre-back, was part of Derby’s Under-18 side that was named as National Champions during the 2018/19 season.
He was also named as an unused substitute for the Rams’ first-team in January 2019, in a home win over Reading, as a reward for his progress at Under-18 and Under-23 level.
After coming through the ranks and impressing with the first-team, under new manager Phillip Cocu ahead of the 2019/20 season, he was rewarded with the opportunity to showcase his talent further.
He made his professional bow in a 1-0 Carabao Cup First Round victory at Scunthorpe United in August 2019 – and he marked the occasion with a stunning goal at Glanford Park.
