The former Newcastle and Portsmouth winger is likely to sign a short-term contract until the end of the season as Jewell plots a future for the club.

Robert is likely to be the next through the door at Pride Park after impressing during a trial over the last few days.

"He's done exceptionally well in training, and hopefully he will be a Derby player on Tuesday," confirmed Jewell.

"I would think he will be on a short-term contract to the end of the season, but I don't want to say too much until it's done and dusted."
