Derby sign Swiss goalkeeper

Derby County FC have signed goalkeeper Patrick Foletti from Swiss club FC Luzern.

FA Premiership strugglers Derby County FC have signed goalkeeper Patrick Foletti from Nationalliga A side FC Luzern until the end of the season, the English club announced on Friday.

Touch and go
If all the paperwork is finished on time, the 27-year-old could make his debut against bottom club Leicester City FC on Saturday.

Drop in wages
Foletti was one of six Luzern players who were forced out of the club after refusing to take a pay-cut. The keeper had impressed Derby in two reserve matches after arriving on trial.
