Derby County hope to sign highly-rated Chelsea youngster Mason Mount on loan for the 2018-19 season, but they could face competition from three Championship rivals.

Frank Lampard will reportedly return to former club Chelsea to tempt teenage midfielder Mason Mount into joining him at Derby County.

The 19-year-old is uncertain of where his long-term future lies after impressing on a season's loan with Vitesse Arnhem last time out.

Mount chipped in with 14 goals and nine assists in the Eredivisie, which he hoped would be enough to earn first-team recognition at Stamford Bridge.

According to The Telegraph, though, another short-term exit could be on the cards as Lampard intends to tap into his connections by taking the England Under-19s international on loan.

Fellow Championship clubs Queens Park Rangers, Reading and Norwich City are also said to be willing to give Mount experience of regular football on these shores.
