Davies pens new Rams deal

03 Jul 2007 - 11:26:20

Derby County boss Billy Davies has ended speculation about his future by agreeing a one-year contract extension with the club.

The former Preston North End manager moved to Pride Park last summer on a three-year deal but has now extended that until the end of the 2009-10 campaign.

Davies guided the Rams to promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs last term, but then hinted that he could leave after growing frustrated at the club's inability to bring in David Kelly as his assistant.

But after signing Robert Earnshaw for £3.5million, Davies said that there may soon be some new additions to his backroom staff.

He told the Derby Evening Telegraph: "We'll hopefully be in a position where we can make a couple of announcements.

"A couple of things are hopefully going to be sorted. It's important we're in a position for training on Wednesday because time is starting to get on."

Meanwhile, chairman Peter Gadsby said of Davies' decision to pen an extended contract: "Over the last few weeks we've been in discussions with Billy over his contract and we're delighted to announce he's agreed an extension to 2010.

"That's very good news and I'd say it's like another new signing."
