Derby County defender Alex Pearce has joined fellow Sky Bet Championship side Millwall.

Pearce, 30, has linked up with the Lions in a loan deal which will run for the remainder of the campaign.

The centre-back has found his first-team opportunities limited to just a single substitute appearance for the Rams this season.

Under the terms of the loan agreement, Pearce will be unable to feature in Millwall’s fixture at Pride Park Stadium later this month.

Pearce has made 58 appearances for Derby since joining from Reading in the summer of 2015 and scored three goals.
