Tom Barkhuizen became the first signing of the David Clowes era as he penned a two-year contract with Derby County in the summer of 2022.

The forward joined following the announcement that Clowes Developments (UK) Ltd had successfully completed their takeover of the football club.

Barkhuizen began his career at Blackpool and was offered professional terms after impressing in their youth set-up.

The forward had spells out on loan at Hereford United and Fleetwood Town in League Two to gain first-team experience before returning to Bloomfield Road to feature in the Championship for Blackpool during the 2013/14 and 2014/15 seasons.

Another spell out on loan, this time at Morecambe, resulted in Barkhuizen signing for the Shrimps on permanent basis ahead of the 2015/16 season after playing 27 times and scoring twice for Blackpool.

He went on to play 69 times for Morecambe, scoring on 17 occasions, before returning to the Championship in January 2017 with Preston North End.

Barkhuizen has played just over 200 times for North End over five-and-a-half seasons, netting 37 goals, before leaving Deepdale at the end of his contract. He joined Derby County in July 2022 and was handed the number seven shirt.
