'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Commons Targets New Contract

Kris Commons has talked of his desire to extend his stay at Pride Park as he enters the last year of his contract. The former Forest man has been told he needs to prove his fitness after injuries seriously disrupted last season as he started only twenty games and made another ten substitute appearances scoring four goals along the way. Commons, along with team-mates Steve Davies and Dean Leacock, have returned early for pre-season training to boost their fitness levels over the summer ahead of an important campaign for all three after spending the majority of last season on the sidelines.

Commons told dcfc.co.uk "I want to stay at Derby, no question of that at all. I'm in my last year and the onus is on me to stay fit, be in the side and to perform well. The Club have said that if all goes well they would envisage opening discussions relatively early in the season."

Tom Glick and Nigel Clough have already indicated that they see Commons as part of the long-term plans at Pride Park as long as he can stay fit. His stint in the side last season coincided with the best spell of football played by The Rams and his return in the last game against Cardiff, where he teamed up with Tomasz Cywka, showed what Nigel Clough`s side had been missing during his absence.

Ahead of an eagerly anticipated new season Commons added "I think the manager and his staff have some great ideas and plans for the future and if we have success here on the pitch it will be a great place to be. I love playing at Pride Park and I'm already excited about the new season."
