Derby offered Prijović a two-year contract. He provisionally signed for Derby on 7 August 2008, subject to international clearance. His full signing was delayed by issues over international clearance, firstly following disagreements over the player's registration which was sorted when Derby agreed to pay Prijović's former club, Parma, an undisclosed amount as compensation and then by the Swiss army, who made Prijović return home to complete his spell with them.
