DERBY County have this afternoon announced the signing of two Swindon Town academy players.

Jayden Bogle and Jayden Mitchell-Lawson will both join the Championship side on a full-time basis next summer as scholars once they have completed their secondary school education.

Meanwhile, the teenage duo are available to perform at academy level for the Rams as schoolboys.


Mitchell-Lawson featured in this season’s FA Youth Cup first round defeat to Cheltenham Town as he started in the Swindon side beaten 5-1 at Whaddon Road.

The pair follow former academy product Will Randall out of the door, who signed for Wolverhampton Wanderers last week.

Derby have also strengthened their academy numbers with the additions of Luke Thomas from Cheltenham Town and Lewis Walker from Ilkeston FC, after agreeing undisclosed fees with their respective clubs.
