Former Derby County right-back Jayden Bogle has been named among the top 50 best young players in the world in a list compiled by editorial Football Critic.
The 20-year-old came through the academy at Derby and broke through in 2018-19.
Bogle was one of the highlights during Frank Lampard’s sole season in charge of the Rams. He started 42 league games, posting two goals and nine assists.
The right-back was one of the best talents outside the Premier League.
After another season in the Championship under Lampard’s successor Phillip Cocu, Sheffield United signed Bogle alongside fellow fullback Max Lowe.
The deal which took the pair to Brammall Lane was in the region of £10 million.
Sheffield United’s second season in the Premier League, however, didn’t go to plan. The Blades were finished bottom of the table and lost a joint-record 29 games.
Bogle, however, earned valuable experience in the top-flight. The attacking fullback made 12 Premier League starts, scoring twice while featuring in a 2-1 win at Old Trafford.
Football Critic name him 48th in their list of the top 50 ‘Golden Boys’ – a list compiling the most talented U21 players in the world led by Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.
Bogle’s presence in the list demonstrates the efforts of Derby’s academy in recent years.
Several players have come through to feature to first-team level, while top talents Kaide Gordon and Liam Delap have moved to Liverpool and Manchester City respectively.
