Derby County Under 23s wideman Alefe Santos has joined National League side Eastleigh on loan.

Santos, 21, will remain with Ronnie Moore’s side until 2nd January 2017 in order to gain further first-team match experience.

He has featured regularly for the Rams’ Under 23s – previously known as Under 21s until this summer - since joining from Bristol Rovers in July 2014.

Santos’ single first-team appearance for Derby came in August 2014 as a substitute in their EFL Cup Second Round tie at home to Charlton Athletic, while he had a loan spell at Notts County in Sky Bet League 1 in January 2015.

Eastleigh are currently eighth in the National League and sit four points off a play-off spot.
