Derby County have brought in strikers Kayden Jackson and Jerry Yates, but Louie Sibley has left the club following his contract expiring.

Jackson, 30, has signed a two-year deal with the Rams following his recent release by Ipswich Town.

He has been joined at Pride Park by Yates, 27, who will spend the season on loan from Swansea City.

Sibley, 22, had come through the club's academy but he could not agree terms on a new deal.

Meanwhile, striker James Collins, 33, who scored 19 goals in the League One promotion campaign, has signed a new one-year deal to remain with Paul Warne's side.

Jackson spent six seasons at Portman Road after spells with Tamworth, Wrexham, Barnsley and Accrington Stanley.

He scored 28 goals in 199 games spread over his six seasons with Ipswich, who went from League One to the Premier League during his time at the club.

Yates managed nine goals in 46 games for Swansea City following a £2.5m move from Blackpool last summer.

He scored 46 goals across three seasons with the Seasiders to get his move to South Wales.

The pair will link up with fellow new arrival Ben Osborn, who was recently signed from Sheffield United.

But Sibley departs after 173 appearances for Rams and scoring 20 goals, having made his debut for the first team as a 17-year-old in 2019.
