Sky Bet Championship club Derby County moved quickly this evening to complete the signing of journeyman striker David Nugent, who arrives at the Rams to bolster their chances of winning promotion to the Premier League this season.

Rams boss Steve McClaren has bolstered his ranks by securing the services of the talisman, with Nugent arriving in the East Midlands for a fee of £2.5 million after falling down the pecking order at Middlesbrough.

The 31-year-old has penned terms with the Rams for two-and-a-half years and he will go straight into the squad for Friday night’s crunch game at Leeds United.

Derby already boast a glut of star players and Nugent will only serve to add to their already decent chances of reaching the promised land of the Premier League for next season.

Following the impressive signing by Derby, Football League World writer Lee Clarke looks at two pros and two cons to the Rams sealing a deal for David Nugent.
