Derby have signed Blackburn goalkeeper Frank Fielding on a month's loan as cover for the injured Stephen Bywater.
The Rams needed a new keeper on loan after losing No.1 Bywater for a month with a wrist problem.
Derby are believed to have made enquiries for Burnley goalkeeper Lee Grant, but were unable to strike a deal after the Clarets were unable to bring a suitable replacement.
The Rams turned their attentions to England Under 21 international Fielding and Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce is happy to loan out the young keeper.
Fielding has yet to make his first-team debut for Blackburn, but he is tipped for a big future at Ewood Park.
Derby manager Nigel Clough admits the signing of Fielding is a real coup for the club and the 22-year-old will go straight into the squad for this weekend's clash with Preston.
"It is a real coup for us to bring Frank in, as he is currently the first-choice England under-21 goalkeeper and been sought after by quite a few clubs," Clough told the club's official website.
"He is a goalkeeper we've had our eye on for some time and we tried to bring him in last season, but the deal didn't materialise.
"He has developed further since then and we're pleased we've been able to bring him in because we required some cover in goal after Stephen picked up his injury.
"Blackburn and Sam Allardyce (Blackburn manager) have been extremely helpful and we're grateful for their assistance."
