Derby sign Australia midfielder Mile Sterjovski

Derby County have made yet another signing this month. BBC Sport reports that Australian midfielder Mile Sterjovski has been cleared to play in the English Premier League after a Home Office clearing.

The 28-year old Aussie international becomes one of the 7 new faces drafted into the bottom side so far in January by manager Paul Jewell. Although Sterjovski comes with ample of international and UEFA Champions League experience having featured for Lille and Basle, he has not played much football for the last 12 months. That was the reason why the Home Office held back a work permit and that is the reason why Sterjovski is a gamble by Jewell.
