Matt Derbyshire has joined Blackpool on loan from Nottingham Forest until the end of the season.

Derbyshire has struggled to hold down a regular first-team place at Forest, and was loaned out to Oldham Athletic earlier this season where he scored four goals in 10 appearances.

The 26-year-old was tipped for big things after making 14 appearances for the England Under-21 side while at Blackburn Rovers, but has since struggled to recapture his best form at the likes of Olympiakos and Birmingham City.

Derbyshire is expected to travel with the Blackpool squad to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday and has been given the number 38 shirt at Bloomfield Road.
