Derby County have completed the signing of American striker Conor Doyle.

Doyle, 18, has been with the Rams on a trial basis during pre-season and has impressed manager Nigel Clough sufficiently to earn a two-year deal.

Clough said: "Conor has settled in very quickly and has impressed everyone. He is very mature and has adapted well to English football."

Doyle has given up his scholarship at Creighton University in Nebraska to pursue a football career in England.

Clough added: "It is a big challenge for him and he has made a big decision.

"We're delighted he has put pen to paper and look forward to seeing him develop further in the next two seasons."
