Derby County have signed Millwall winger David Martin on a two-year deal after he spent the latter part of the season on loan with the Rams.

The 24-year-old made 11 appearances for Derby, scoring in the win over Cardiff on the last day of the season.

Rams boss Nigel Clough told the club website: "David will come back with a lot of confidence because of how he finished the season.

"He is an exciting player and he is hungry to succeed."

Clough added: "He had to be patient waiting for his chance but with Stephen Pearson likely to miss the start of the season he has the chance to make the position his own from the start."

Martin joined Millwall from Crystal Palace in January 2008, having first attracted attention at Dartford.

Neither side have disclosed details of a transfer fee.
