Derby manager Paul Jewell is set to bolster his struggling side with a couple of new recruits this week.
Argentina striker Emanuel Villa is due to arrive on Thursday and complete a move from Mexican side UAG Tecos, while former Newcastle and Portsmouth winger Laurent Robert is also heading for Pride Park.
Robert has been handed a trial after having his contract cancelled by Spanish side Levante.
'He's coming in on Friday and we'll see how he looks,' Jewell told Sky Sports News. 'We'll have a look and see what condition he is in and we'll see if he is right for us.'
