Chelsea midfielder Mount excited to be part of Lampard's Derby

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is excited to be part of Frank Lampard's Derby County.

Loan signing Mount now has the chance to work with his hero on a daily basis.

Lampard's lieutenant at Derby is Jody Morris, who was Mount's youth team coach at Chelsea.

"I worked with Jody and the gaffer I looked up to because I am a Chelsea player. Obviously, he was a midfielder as well. Derby is such a massive club. There's a great history behind it and the fans are great as well. It was definitely up there at the top of my list after speaking with them.

"The opportunity was something I couldn't turn down. It has been the best choice for me. I need to keep learning about the players - and I am sure we can do brilliant stuff."
