25-year old Derek, who struck up a close friendship with Chezza after appearing in her Parachute video is reportedly planning to relocate to the UK next month for the rest of the year.
The Dancing With The Stars performer is said to be in talks with West End producers as well as a number of TV executives keen to sign him up.
A source told The Sun: "Derek has been flooded with offers to work in the UK. Cheryl is thrilled for him and glad that all the interest means he will be spending a lot more time on these shores."
"She's more than happy to have him move in. She is on her way back to full strength now and is looking forward to having a pal round to keep her company."
They continued: "Derek is looking for somewhere of his own in West London. But before he finds a new home, he's glad to shack up with Cheryl."
However, Derek may face some competition from the X Factor judge's previous love interest Black Eyed Peas rapper Will.I.Am who has allegedly vowed to look after Chez following her battle with the mosquito-carried illness.
Will told The Sun he 'can't wait' to see the Fight For This Love singer and will do his best to put a smile on Chezza's face again.
The Boom Boom Pow star claimed: "Cheryl's incredibly strong-spirited and she's a fighter.
"She's making progress and will be back at work shortly. It's her passion.
Will.i.am added: "I'll see her soon. I want to put that gorgeous smile back on her pretty face."
