Pearson Extension Not As Near As Thought?

Pearson Extension Not As Near As Thought?

Stephen Pearson was believed to be close to agreeing a new contract with Derby as Nigel Clough confirmed that talks were at an advanced stage. He said that the 27-year-old only had minor details that needed to be sorted out for this to be completed.

"We are quite a long way down the road with Stephen but there are just a couple of little details to sort out."

These little details are Pearson's injury record, as the Scotland international has been sidelined a number of times over the past few years.

"We are a little bit concerned about his injury record and Stephen understands that."

Clough was talking to the Evening Telegraph.

Pearson will be out of contact at the end of the season so unless he agrees a new deal he would be able to walk away for nothing, and this is something that could well happen if he isn't offered a longer deal than the one on the table at Pride Park according to his agent Willy McKay.

"Stephen is a free agent in June and obviously some clubs have spoken to me to ask about his situation.

There has been some dialogue with Derby and they have offered him a new one-year deal.

Stephen has been unlucky with injuries at Derby, but he has a wealth of experience having played in the Champions League for Celtic and the Premier League for Derby.

Stephen is keen to secure his long-term future and we are waiting to see if that will be with Derby or another club."

McKay was talking to skysports.com.
