Alongside McClaren, first team coach Paul Simpson and goalkeeping coach Eric Steele have also agreed on new terms.

The trio joined the club in September 2013 following the dismissal of Nigel Clough, guiding the team from 14th place to the play-off final, which they lost 1-0 to QPR.

“We’re all delighted to commit our futures,” McClaren told the BBC.

“The club is continuing to grow and we’re all happy to be part of it; the future is exciting for Derby County.”

The former England manager, 53, also said that one of the reasons that he signed a new deal at the iPro was because of the backing he has received from the fans, players and, most importantly, the owners.

The Rams will be prime contenders for promotion this season after their strong finish to the last campaign saw them finish in third place, and McClaren will be looking to take his team up automatically, if not as champions.
