Derby County sign Chris Martin from Norwich City on an initial one-month loan deal.

Derby County have signed Norwich City striker Chris Martin on an initial one-month loan deal.

The 24-year-old had a recent spell on loan at Swindon Town, where he made 12 appearances.

Rams forward Theo Robinson joined Huddersfield Town on an emergency loan on Friday and manager Nigel Clough has moved quickly to bring Martin to Pride Park.

He told Derby's official website: "We're pleased Chris has decided to join us and provide another option in attack.

"With Theo asking to go out on loan, there was obviously a need to bring in a replacement once a deal with Huddersfield was agreed. Initially, Chris is here for a month and we'll just take things from there."

Martin has made 117 appearances for Norwich, scoring 34 goals.
