Following Derby County’s relegation to League 1, we have highlighted that there are a few former Arsenal players in Derby’s current squad. Luke Plange, Malcolm Ebiowei, and Krystian Bielik all spent time at the Gunners’ Academy.

Plange has already secured a move to Crystal Palace, joining them in January before returning to Derby on loan. But the other two have to sort out their future now that Derby is collapsing.

The S*n report that Palace are also hoping to land Ebiowei, with the teenager out of contract this summer.

Patrick Vieira sees Plange and Ebiowei as long-term prospects, and he wants to loan them both out next season.

All Nigerian Football confirms the story of Palace’s interest in Ebiowei, so he seems to have some legs.

Ebiowei, 18, has become a Derby regular in recent months.

He has been on a run of nine consecutive league starts since March 5 and appears to be the player he promised to be before leaving Arsenal in 2020.

Derby were hoping to keep him and extend his contract, but that seems unlikely at the moment.
