Pearson Signs New Derby Deal

Problems that were preventing Stephen Pearson from signing a new contract with Derby have been overcome and he signed a new deal on Friday.

The 27-year-old said that Derby was the only place he wanted to be, despite his agent recently saying thoughts to the contrary, so this new contract will see him stay until 2012.

"It's great to have it all sorted and although I had other options, this is the only place I really want to be.

I'm fit and back in the side and hopefully the Derby supporters will see the best of me now.

We are building a good squad here and the gaffer and the ownership group have a clear vision and plan of how to make the club and team better.

Now my future is sorted I can focus on doing my best for the team and making sure we continue to improve."

Nigel Clough has been very keen on tying the Scottish international down to a new contract and this has now happened, something that the Rams boss is very happy about.

"We believe he is one of the best players in the Championship and is at the stage in his career where he is going to get even better.

Tom Glick (County CEO) has done a great job in getting this deal sorted and it is another big step for us as we look to build our squad for future success."

Pearson and Clough were both talking to the official website.

It's good that we've got this agreed, for a while it didn't look like we would!
