Derby County have signed Ipswich Town striker Tamas Priskin on loan until Monday, 2 January.

The Rams were desperate to bring in a forward following injuries to Steven Davies, Nathan Tyson and Theo Robinson.

Priskin, 25, has only played one game for Town this season and manager Paul Jewell has told Priskin he can leave.

"Tamas has lots of ability but at times seems to lack concentration and maybe the change will do him the world of good," Jewell told BBC Radio Suffolk.

"It's never really happened for him here. He's a good lad and has all the attributes but I don't think he consistently puts it together."

Jewell added that he did not know if the deal could lead to a permanent move.

"It's up to Tamas if he goes to Derby and puts himself in the shop window," the former Rams boss said. "His contract is up in the summer and it's up to him."

Hungarian Priskin joined in August 2009 but has only started 28 league games and has spent time on loan at QPR and Swansea City.
