Derby County have signed veteran Leicester City striker Paul Dickov on loan until January.

Dickov will provide cover for injured duo Chris Porter and Steve Davies - as well as Luke Varney who is out on loan.

The former Scotland international played alongside Rams manager Nigel Clough at Manchester City in the 1990s.

Dickov, 36, is in his second spell with the Foxes and is in line to feature against local rivals Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

He told the club's website: "I haven't played as much football as I would have liked at Leicester with the players we've brought in, I don't think I would have got much game time.

"After recovering from a back operation last year I feel good and I believe there are goals in me."
