Claude Davis has completed his move to Derby from Sheffield United after winning his appeal for a work permit.
The 28-year-old Jamaican international defender agreed a £3million move from Bramall Lane earlier this month but the transfer was delayed because he had not played enough international games over the last two years to meet the requirements.
Dispensation was granted to Davis at a hearing in Sheffield on Wednesday and he will now finalise his switch to Pride Park.
Rams boss Billy Davies told the club's website: "We're delighted with the decision and welcome Claude as a Derby player.
"We can now start to get him involved in playing matches and in further getting to know his team-mates and everyone else at the club.
"Claude is an excellent addition. Hopefully he'll be a huge asset to Derby County and it's down to him now to fight for his place, as is the case with every member of the squad."
