Duncan moved to Pride Park last summer after a spell in Italy with Fiorentina.

Duncan, a cousin of Rangers manager and Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, began his career at Anfield.

However, he ended his spell at his boyhood club with 23 goals and eight assists in 26 Under-18 games.

After a spell with Man City, he then signed for Fiorentina in 2019.
