“He gets the ball and moves it on. He keeps it simple and defends well,” the former England captain told the Derby Telegraph.

“He is getting better every week and is a joy to play with.”

The 19-year-old has made 13 appearances in the Championship and has become a key figure in Phillip Cocu’s starting 11 since the turn of the year.

He made eight first team appearances during Lampard’s time as Derby boss.
