Derbyshire, who joined Forest in 2011, was capped 14 times as an England Under-21 international and has enjoyed spells with Blackburn Rovers, Birmingham and Olympiacos.

The 26-year-old has spent much of this season at Oldham, where he scored four goals in ten appearances for Paul Dickov's side.

Derbyshire will add strength upfront for the Seasiders, following the recent return of loan duo Nouha Dicko and Wes Thomas to their parent clubs.
