Derby have signed winger Tom Ince on loan from Hull City for the rest of the season.

The 23-year-old has made just nine appearances for the Tigers, scoring once, and spent a brief loan spell with the Rams’ bitter rivals Nottingham Forest earlier this season.

Derby head coach Steve McClaren told dcfc.co.uk: “Tom Ince is an exciting talent and we’re pleased that he will be spending the rest of the season with us.

“We’ve obviously found ourselves a bit short out wide lately with Jordon Ibe returning to Liverpool and Johnny Russell picking up a hamstring injury, so to bring someone of Tom’s calibre in is a real coup for us.”

Ince made his name at Blackpool, scoring 31 goals in 86 games and landing the Football League’s Young Player of the Year award in 2013.
