Derby have signed England Under-19 striker Ryan Noble on a month-long loan deal from Sunderland.
Noble will go straight in to the Rams' squad for the npower Championship clash against Middlesbrough at Pride Park on Tuesday evening.
"Ryan is a young lad with a good reputation coming from Sunderland, and we are pleased he has chosen to come here," said Derby manager Nigel Clough.
The 19-year-old has been prolific for Sunderland's youth and reserve sides in recent seasons, netting 12 times in 17 appearances during the last campaign.
Clough added: "Sunderland manager Steve Bruce rates him highly and thinks this will be a good part of his development.
"We have watched Ryan a few times and have been impressed with him."
