- The Blues' loanee has missed 4 games with a hamstring issue.
- Frank Lampard reveals the Englishman has almost recovered and might be used in the Rams' next game against Millwall on Tuesday.
Chelsea loanee at Derby County Mason Mount has missed four games in a row with a hamstring issue. However, the Rams' manager Frank Lampard has revealed the 20-year-old has almost fully recovered and will be in contention for a Championship fixture against Millwall on Wednesday, quoted by Derbyshire Live:
"Mason is ready to train. Whether he can start Wednesday against Millwall, I don't know."
Meanwhile, the playmaker has been feeling great on loan under the Stamford Bridge icon's guidance. Mount has played 32 games in all competitions for the Rams, mainly used as an attacking midfielder, scored 6 goals and provided 3 assists.
Although the Englishman himself has never concealed his desire to earn a rotation place at Chelsea, he has outlined earning a promotion to Premier League as his aim for the loan spell.
Thus, Derby County are seventh on the Championship table, tied at 51 points with six-placed Middlesborough. With 15 games left to play and 6 teams set for a potential promotion, the Rams have every opportunity to secure at least a playoff spot.
