David Nugent signed for Derby County from Middlesbrough yesterday, but how did fans react to the £2.5 million deal? We went to Twitter to find out.

David Nugent was announced as Derby's latest signing yesterday. The 31-year-old agreed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Rams but has the former-England striker impressed the Derby fans?


Nugent played for Leicester City for four years before signing for Middlesbrough in 2015 where he scored eight goals in 42 league matches.

The majority of fans seemed pleased with a player with so much Championship experience. Nugent has played eight seasons in the second tier of English football and has been part of the squads of Boro and Leicester that have recently been promoted.

Others were less than impressed with Steve McClaren's most recent acquisition. Was a 31-year-old the best player to spend money on?

But some saw age as but a number, once a goalscorer, always a goalscorer.
