Derby boss Paul Jewell has started the rebuilding of his squad by signing Australia international Ruben Zadkovich.
The 21-year-old has signed a two-year contract after last month deciding to leave Sydney FC at the end of his deal with the club to become a free agent.
Zadkovich, who can play in central midfield or right-back, joins another Aussie at Derby in Mile Sterjovski following his arrival at Pride Park in January.
'Ruben impressed us enormously in training,' remarked Jewell. 'A number of clubs have been interested in him and we wanted to make sure we didn't miss out on a fantastic talent.'
