Sunderland striker Ryan Noble has joined npower Championship Derby on a month's loan.
The 20-year-old has scored 13 times in just nine appearances for the Black Cats' reserves to date this season and figured in two Barclays Premier League games as a substitute.
Noble had a spell at Pride Park last season but returned after just one game because of injury.
The Rams currently lie in eighth place in the Championship table, just two points adrift of the play-off places.
Noble is the third Sunderland youngster to head off on loan this week with Jordan Cook and Louis Laing joining Carlisle and Wycombe respectively.
