French winger joins the Rams

French winger joins the Rams

Rams boss Paul Jewell has continued reshaping his side in the transfer window by confirming the capture of French winger Laurent Robert on a short-term deal.

The 32-year-old former Newcastle United and Portsmouth wide man will put pen to paper on a contract that runs until the end of the season, subject to receiving international clearance.

Jewell was delighted to have captured Robert following a brief trial at Moor Farm and Jewell told the club's official website: 'His ability is unquestioned and I think this could be a really good bit of business for us.

'He hasn't cost us anything in terms of a transfer fee and we had the chance to have a good look at him in training before making a decision.

'Laurent's key quality is what he can do with the ball - he can unlock the door, make things happen and produce a bit of magic.

'I had a good chat with him at the weekend and I have no doubt about his desire to play again and be involved.

'I'm convinced we'll get the best out of him here, and if we do we'll have quite a player on our hands.'

Robert has been without a club since leaving Spanish side Levante in December, but will become the Rams' third signing of the transfer window.
