Ryan Noble has joined Derby County on loan for a second time after Martin O`Neill agreed to let the young striker move to Pride Park for a month. Noble joined The Rams on loan last season but was restricted to one appearance from the bench after a back injury forced his return to the North East. The England Under 19 striker has been a prolific scorer for the reserves at Sunderland but has failed to make the break through into the first team squad under former manager Steve Bruce and O`Neill has decided to let him leave to gain more first team experience having only made five starts at The Stadium of Light.

Talking to dcfc.co.uk about his move Noble said he excited to be back and he was ready to make an impact this time:

‘It’s fantastic to be back and as soon as Derby wanted me, there was only one place I wanted to come to. The first time I was here it didn’t quite work out but I’ve come back this time and hopefully I can show what I can do out on the pitch.

‘I was just getting into my stride before I got injured last year. I came off the bench away at Swansea and did really well, but than an injury related to a stress fracture I had in my back previously caused me a few problems.
