Leon Best has joined Derby County on a season long loan from Blackburn Rovers as Steve McClaren looks to bolster The Rams` attacking option.

Best spent the last few months of last season on loan at Sheffield Wednesday where he scored four goals in twelve appearances having scored the equaliser for Rovers on the opening day of the season at the iPro Stadium. The Nottingham born striker has seven caps for Republic of Ireland but the Ewood Park cub have allowed him out on loan for the season Talking to dcfc.co.uk about the signing Head Coach McClaren said:

“He is a player with Premier League and Championship experience, knows how to score goals and he will provide a different option in our attacking armoury. I`ve spoken to the player and believe he views this loan move as a fresh start, and I can sense he is determined to make the most of the opportunity.”
