Derby have signed Spurs duo Mounir el Hamdaoui and Johnnie Jackson on loan.Derby County have made it five loan signings for the week after landing Tottenham Hotspur duo Mounir el Hamdaoui and Johnnie Jackson.
The Championship club have already added to their squad over the past few days by bringing in Khalilou Fadiga, Peter Whittingham and Stern John.
Rams boss Phil Brown has continued to bolster his ranks after agreeing three-month loan deals for el Hamdaoui and Jackson (pictured).
Moroccan striker el Hamdaoui has yet to make his debut for Spurs since joining the club from Excelsior Rotterdam in January.
He featured in pre-season but picked up a knee injury which ruled him out of the opening fortnight of the Premiership season.
Spurs boss Martin Jol, who signed Grzegorz Rasiak from Derby last month, has now decided el Hamdaoui would benefit from a stint in The Championship.
El Hamdaoui has been joined in the East Midlands by Jackson, who has also not figured in Jol's plans this season.
With Jol having a wealth of midfielders at his disposal, he has sanctioned another loan move for Jackson, who spent three months with Watford last season.
