Brighton's Matt Clarke joins Derby on season-long loan deal
Last Updated: 02/08/19 11:08am
Derby have completed the season-long loan signing of defender Matt Clarke from Brighton.
Clarke joined Brighton from Portsmouth on a four-year deal earlier this summer for an initial £3.5m, becoming Graham Potter's first signing as Seagulls manager.
But Potter is allowing the 22-year-old centre-back to continue his development in the Championship.
Derby boss Phillip Cocu was keen to add a ball-playing central defender to his ranks ahead of the new season.
