Jewell: Duke is summer's best signing
Derby County boss Paul Jewell has claimed that the season-long loan signing Nathan Ellington from Watford can be the Championship`s best piece of pre-season business…despite the substantial loan fee and massive wages.
The former Bradford and Wigan gaffer told the official Rams club site "Nathan has the potential to be the best signing of the summer in this division. At his best he is the most lethal striker in the Championship…".
Of Ellington`s attributes, Jewell added "He has everything; he`s powerful, quick, great in the air and a magnificent finisher. I can`t wait to work with him again and get him back to producing the type of football I know he can".
Ellington, who led the line for Jewell`s Wigan revolution, makes the switch from Vicarage Road just 7 months after signing on the dotted on line ona £3.25m deal from West Brom.
