Derby County have signed Middlesbrough midfielder Julien de Sart on loan for the rest of the season.

The Belgium Under-21 international defensive midfielder joined Boro from Standard Liege in February 2016, for an undisclosed fee of about £2m.

De Sart, 22, has made three appearances for the Riverside club, with his only start coming in the League Cup against Fulham in August 2016.

"He is a talented player with plenty of potential," said boss Steve McClaren.

De Sart is eligible for the FA Cup third-round tie at West Brom on Saturday.
