Sky Sports understands Derby County winger Lee Croft has joined SPL side St Johnstone on loan for the remainder of the season.
Croft has not featured for the Rams since mid-October and manager Nigel Clough had been expected to let the 26-year-old move on in the January transfer window.
Clough has confirmed that there is an opportunity for the former Norwich City wide man to play regular football with St Johnstone.
"It is an opportunity for Lee to go and get some games with a view to doing something in the summer," said Clough in the Derby Evening Telegraph regarding the possibility of a deal.
It is understood that Croft has now linked up with Steve Lomas' side and he could be in contention for Saturday's SPL fixture against Hibernian.
