The window for loan signings opened on Friday and there are areas of his Rams squad that Clough would like to strengthen.

Any loan signing coming in would be with a view to a permanent deal in the summer, as happened with Jamie Ward, Frank Fielding and Theo Robinson in February 2011.

But Clough insists he is happy to finish the season with his current group of players if a loan signing is not possible.

"We will get this weekend's game out of the way and then make a couple of enquiries," Clough told the media ahead of Derby's trip to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

"We would like to have a look at a couple of players before the end of the season, if possible.

"If it is not possible, we will keep watching them at their respective clubs and make a judgement from there.

"We are certainly happy enough with the squad. We now have Jake Buxton back in training, so there is only Shaun Barker in the treatment room - touch wood."
