DARREN Currie will join Premiership hopefuls Derby County tomorrow.
The Blues midfielder returns from a spell with LA Galaxy later today, after a 24-hour flight delay, and will join the Rams on loan for the remainder of the season.
County boss Billy Davies is looking to take Currie on a permanent basis if the loan spell proves fruitful.

Ipswich entertain Derby at Portman Road on April 14 but, as with his Coventry loan deal, Currie will not be allowed to play against his old club as part of the arrangement.
Although he played in three games while with LA Galaxy, Currie does not intend to return to America in the summer after missing the intensity of English football.
The midfielder was a £250,000 signing from Brighton in December 2004 and was the club's leading crosser and assist-maker for the Blues last season when he played in every match.
Meanwhile, Francis Jeffers has returned to Blackburn where he will today have a scan to assess the extent of his hamstring injury and a definitive decision on his loan spell will then be taken.
