Nathan Ellington is hoping to resurrect his career at Derby after his 'worst season in football' at Watford.
The 26-year-old striker recently brought to an end a 10-month stay at Vicarage Road after failing to impress manager Aidy Boothroyd.
Prior to his move to the Rams, Ellington made no secret of his desire to reunite with Paul Jewell after working with the Derby boss at former club Wigan.
And Ellington is now delighted to have joined Derby after admitting that his relationship with Boothroyd was not working.
He told the Watford Observer: "The way the season panned out meant it was my worst season in football. The best thing was to move on and start afresh.
"I told him (Boothroyd) three or four times I was not getting any games and I need to move on and find someone who is going to play me, but I felt it was like buying a petrol car and putting diesel in it.
"I'm pleased to have it sorted and be back with my old manager (Jewell). He knows me best and knows how to get best out of me."
