Striker Makes Pool Move

Matt Derbyshire has joined Blackpool on a loan deal from Nottingham Forest until the end of the season. 

The Lancashire-born striker is no stranger to playing his football in the north-west, having spent five years at Blackburn Rovers. 

Capped 14 times as an England Under-21 international, Derbyshire has since been out to Greece with Olympiacos, before returning to England for a loan spell at Birmingham and subsequent transfer to Forest. This season he has spent time at Boundary Park under Paul Dickov at Oldham. 

The 26-year-old, who will wear the number 38 shirt at Bloomfield Road, is expected to travel with the rest of the squad to The Midlands this afternoon.
