Derby County have confirmed that keeper Kelle Roos has signed a new three-year deal to remain at the club.
With his previous deal running out in the summer, there had been thoughts that the 27-year-old might leave on a free this summer but he has committed himself to the Rams.
Whilst that’s good news for Frank Lampard and the team, one man who may not welcome the update is Scott Carson.
The experienced stopper lost his place to Roos for much of the last six months and had to watch on from the bench as the east Midlands side made it to the play-off final.
Even though he will be pleased for the Dutchman, the reality is that Roos is going to be number one moving forward and it puts Carson in a difficult position.
Of course, he could stay and fight for his place but the reality is that it will be hard to dislodge his teammate.
Therefore, this could force the 33-year-old to push for a move away from Pride Park this summer as he will really want to be playing regularly for the final few years of his career.
Carson will still feel he has a lot to offer in the Championship and the chance to join a club that will give him such an opportunity will appeal.
After four largely successful years with the Rams from an individual perspective it will be hard for the ex-England international to move on, however the Roos news will have convinced him it’s time to start a new chapter elsewhere.
