All modern Shimano derailleurs are compatible regardless of the number of speeds they're marketed for. The amount of derailleur swing is identical on all modern Shimano derailleurs. Only the shifters are set up differently to index to different number of speeds. You can use a Tourney derailleur with cheap-o 6 speed stem shifters or go nuts and use them with 9-speed dura-ace bar-end shifters. I've done just that.
