Derby County have snapped up Liverpool defender Daniel Ayala.

The Spanish stopper has joined Derby on loan for the remainder of the season.

Rams boss Nigel Clough revealed his interest in signing the Spaniard last week and has now finalised a move before the close of the transfer window.

Ayala had spent three months on loan at Hull earlier in the season and he scored in the Tigers' 2-0 home win over Derby.

However, he picked up a hamstring injury which led to former Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson criticising Hull for not sending the youngster back to Anfield sooner.
