Huddlestone backing Derby pal Mount for big things

Derby County midfielder Mason Mount is being tipped for big things.

Mount is on-loan at Derby from Chelsea.

"He's got the lot," said Derby teammate Tom Huddlestone. "He's good on the ball, works his socks off, and for someone his size, he's not afraid to put his foot in and has the composure in the final third to pick a pass or score a goal.

"Depending on what he wants to be, a No 8 or a No 10, he's got the ability to go past midfielders as well, which is a rare commodity.

"His goal scoring and finishing is similar to the manager's. The manager wasn't too much of a dribbler, but I think Mason has got that in his locker, too.

"He can face up to a midfielder and drop a shoulder and go past him. That's the only difference with the manager. I'd imagine he would play Premier League after this."
