Derby have completed the season-long loan finalizing of protector Matt Clarke from Brighton.
Clarke joined Brighton from Portsmouth on a four-year deal earlier this summer season for a preliminary ₤ 3.5 m, becoming Graham Potter’s very first signing as Seagulls supervisor.
But Potter is permitting the 22- year-old centre-back to continue his development in the Championship.
Derby boss Phillip Cocu was keen to add a ball-playing central defender to his ranks ahead of the brand-new season.
