Derby youngster Malcolm Ebiowei is reported to have rejected Manchester United in favor of another Premier League outfit.
Some of Derby County’s top players will be searching for new teams this summer due to the club’s financial problems and demotion from the Championship last year.
The England international is one of the players that appears to be leaving, and according to Fabrizio Romano, Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace won the race to secure his services while the Manchester based outfit failed in their bid to sign him.

The highly-rated striker who made his debut for Derby’s first team last campaign, has represented both three Lions and the Dutch national side at the junior level.
Ebiowei, who is only 18 years old, featured in 15 matches for Wayne Rooney’s side in the English Championship, and he will now move to Crystal Palace.
A loan transfer would likely be best for the promising star’s development because he could initially struggle to make the senior team squad.
Once the London based outfit completes the signing of talented player, it would be wise to loan him out to another club where he can get more playing tike & experience.
