Russell happy to cross border

Russell happy to cross border

Striker Johnny Russell revealed he always fancied the opportunity of playing in England after leaving Dundee United for Championship outfit Derby County.

The 23-year-old has finally moved south for a fee of around £750,000 following twenty goals for the Tangerines during an injury-affected campaign last season. Russell missed two months of it with a broken fibula in February.

The likes of Huddersfield Town and Sheffield United had already previously tried to recruit him, while Italian Serie 'A' side Catania also failed with three bids after the player expressed an interest in moving even further afield.

"I don't think you could count England as abroad," Russell told BBC Radio Derby. "But it's somewhere I've always wanted to play. You want to try different things and I think I'm at a great club here.

"I spoke to the manager, the chairman, the coaching staff and their plans for what they want to do with the club, that's really sold me on it."
