Rams snare young Gunner
19 Aug 2008 - 16:38:39
Derby County boss Paul Jewell has added teenage Arsenal midfielder Nacer Barazite to his ranks on loan.
The 18-year-old Dutchman has joined the Rams until December 31 as he looks to gain experience of first-team football.
Barazite, who began his career at NEC Nijmegen, has made just two Carling Cup appearances for the Gunners.
"Nacer is young but has played in their first team and he will come here to join up with our first-team squad," Jewell told the club's official website.
"I am quite keen to get a link-up with some of the top teams and I spoke to Arsene Wenger over the summer about a few players.
"Nacer is going to be a good player. He is an exciting prospect, a very good footballer and he will be a good addition to our squad."
Meanwhile, the Rams have also handed a trial to French midfielder Julien Sable.
The 27-year-old currently plays for Lens in the French top-flight.
