Chris Wilder has added two exciting wing-backs to his squad, with the long-term signings of Derby County duo Jayden Bogle and Max Lowe.

Both players have penned four-year deals at Bramall Lane with United paying the Rams an undisclosed combined fee for their services.

On the double deal, a delighted Wilder remarked: "The Championship has been a great recruitment area for us and I wanted to bring some young players in who will provide competition for places.

"Jayden and Max will put huge pressure on George (Baldock) and Enda (Stevens). It was important we got the right characters, the right type of players, ones who are athletic and technically very good, both are modern day wing backs and I'm looking forward to working with them.

"We've got a clear plan and identification of what we need and we're still going through that process. We're not just signing players because other people are in for them, we're signing these players because they fit into what we are about.

"It's game on for everyone, it's not a warning, it's a fact and yet again I have to thank the board for making the two permanent signings happen because it's a great bit of business for the football club."

Bogle had spells at Reading and Swindon Town before moving to Pride Park in January 2016.

Having impressed consistently for Derby's U18s and U23s when selected, the attacking full back was promoted to the first team ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

Under then boss Frank Lampard, the England U20 international went on to make 50 appearances in a season that saw the Rams lose to Aston Villa in the play-off final at Wembley.

Bogle arrives at Bramall Lane having amassed 90 senior games at the age of just 20.

Meanwhile, Lowe came through Derby's academy system and turned professional at Pride Park in June 2015.

Comfortable anywhere down the left-hand side, his senior debut came in the EFL Cup in 2016, converting the decisive penalty in a 14-13 shootout win for the Rams against Carlisle United.

The 23-year-old, who has represented England at numerous youth levels, has played close to 50 times for Derby, whilst more recently he has impressed in the SPL whilst on-loan at Aberdeen during two loan stints at Pittodrie.
