Pompey have announced the signing of Scotland international Chris Maguire from Derby.

The 23-year-old striker has penned a one-month deal and will go straight into the Blues’ squad for tomorrow’s trip to Brighton.

His arrival ends Michael Appleton’s week-long bid to replace Liam Lawrence, who moved on loan to Cardiff City last Friday.

Maguire arrived at Pride Park from Aberdeen in the summer.

He scored in Derby’s 3-1 home triumph over Pompey back in October.

The young hitman was awarded his first full Scotland cap against Northern Ireland in February 2011.
