Palmer loaned to Derby

Kasey Palmer has tonight joined Derby County on loan until the end of the season.

Palmer, 21, spent the first half of the campaign at Huddersfield Town, where he made five appearances in a spell interrupted by injury.

An Under-21 international, he helped the Terriers to promotion to the Premier League for the first time last season, having previously lifted the Under-21 Premier League, FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League with the Blues.

Derby sit second in the Championship, 11 points behind leaders Wolves with a one-point cushion to Aston Villa in third.
