Derby signing Davis wins work permit

Derby County signing Claude Davis has won his new work permit.

The 28-year-old Jamaican agreed a £3million move from Sheffield United earlier this month but the deal was held up because he had not played enough international games over the last two years to meet the requirements.

However dispensation was granted to Davis at a hearing in Sheffield and Rams boss Billy Davies said: "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."
