Derby have made Stockport striker Liam Dickinson their ninth signing of the summer in a deal that could eventually rise to £1million.

The Rams had a £250,00 bid for the 6ft 4in forward turned down last month but raised their offer for the highly-rated 22-year-old, who has signed a four-year contract.

Dickinson scored 21 goals last season including one in the play-off final victory against Rochdale.
