Leicester City striker Paul Dickov is set to join rivals Derby County on a short-term loan. The veteran, who has been unsuccessful in his return to the Walkers Stadium after a spell away from the club with Blackburn, will stay at Pride Park until January.

Recent signings Martyn Waghorn, Paul Gallagher and Yann Kermorgant have all leapfrogged Dickov in the pecking order, prompting the Scot to ask for a temporary move away in search of first-team action.

Dickov will be unavailable for games against his parent club.
