Scott Malone joined Derby County on Deadline Day in August 2018 from Premier League side Huddersfield Town. He signed a three-year deal with the club for an undisclosed fee.
The left-sided player came through the youth ranks at Wolverhampton Wanderers before gaining valuable first team experience out on loan. After a spell in Hungary with Újpest FC, Malone joined Southend United, Burton Albion and Bournemouth where he eventually signed permanently in 2012.
After six goals in 37 appearances for the Cherries, he joined Millwall where he spent three seasons. His run of scoring continued as he netted five goals for the Lions before joining Cardiff City for an undisclosed fee in 2015.
Malone featured in every fixture for the Bluebirds that season and that caught the attention of fellow Championship side Fulham who were alerted to his services.
Following another season of six goals and featuring heavily, he helped his side reach the play-offs where they lost to Reading. Huddersfield Town were to beat the Royals at Wembley to gain promotion to the Premier League and they paid an undisclosed fee for Malone.
He made 22 Premier League appearances last season for the Terriers and helped them sustain their status in the top division before making the move to the Rams.
