Derby defender Tom Naylor has joined Football League newcomers Newport on loan.

Naylor, 22, who was made available for transfer by Rams boss Nigel Clough this summer, will remain with the Welsh club until the beginning of January 2014.

Newport's Byron Anthony suffered a broken leg last week during their surprise Capital One Cup win at Brighton and Exiles boss Justin Edinburgh has drafted in Naylor as a temporary replacement.

Naylor joined Derby in November 2011 from then-Conference side Mansfield initially on loan before sealing a permanent move to Pride Park during the January 2012 transfer window. He has made 10 first-team appearances for the Rams.
