Nick Blackman has left Derby County to join Maccabi Tel Aviv on a permanent transfer.

International clearance was this afternoon provided by the Football Association in order for the player to be registered with the Israeli side.

Blackman, 29, spent the 2017/18 season on loan with Maccabi Tel Aviv before heading to Spanish Segunda Division outfit Sporting de Gijon for the 2018/19 campaign.

The striker made 29 appearances in total for the Rams after joining from Reading in January 2016, scoring once in a 2-0 victory at Cardiff City in September 2016.

Derby County would like to wish Nick every success in the future.
