Jesse Lingard has signed a new three-year contract at Manchester United and joined Derby on loan for the remainder of the season, according to Sky sources.

The 22-year-old started Louis van Gaal's first Premier League game in charge of United at the start of the season but was forced off after just 24 minutes due to injury.

Lingard, an England U21 international who began his career at Old Trafford, has had previous loan spells with Leicester, Birmingham and most recently Brighton.

Derby manager Steve McClaren has already added Hull winger Tom Ince to his attacking options for the rest of the campaign.
