Wigan Athletic youngster Tomasz Cywka has joined Championship side Derby County on loan until the end of the season.

The Polish forward has struggled to make the breakthrough at Wigan and has been offered the chance to build up experience at Derby.

The 21-year-old is expected to go into the squad for the Rams' clash with Midlands rivals Leicester at Pride Park on Saturday.

"Tomasz is a talented footballer and someone we have seen on a few occasions whilst taking in games," said boss Nigel Clough.

"We believe he can bring something to the squad and he certainly gives us another option in that attacking area."

Crucial point

Cywka joined Wigan in the summer of 2006 from Polish side Gwarek Zabrze and he has made two senior appearances for the Latics, both in cup competitions.

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez said: "Tomasz is at a crucial point in his career and he needs to be playing first-team football to help reach his potential.

"The deal will hopefully give him that valuable experience in a competitive league, at a top side, and be of great benefit to him."
