Derby have confirmed that Tom Huddlestone has signed a new deal with the club that will see him extend his stay until the end of the 2019/2020 season.
The midfielder has made 26 appearances for Frank Lampard’s side in this year’s campaign and has played his part in their push for a top six finish.
This is his second spell for the club, having previously being drafted through the club’s academy system earlier in his career.
Huddlestone rejoined the club back in 2017 from Hull City and hasn’t looked back since and is a crucial player for Lampard going forward.
He’ll be hoping that he can continue to impress for Derby this season, and the Rams boss will be counting on Huddlestone’s experience both on and off the pitch in a relatively young side.
But how did Derby supporters react to this latest news?

Let’s just hope he comes out from the centre circle next season????

Disappointed. But still behind Lamps and the club to push forward.

Wrong decision, way past it and far to slow. Must be based on FL realising Evans isn’t good enough

Poor decision, way too slow, now getting caught on the ball, doesn't protect the back four at all, soppy stuff.

Can’t pretend he is amazing but he does a job. Very nice guy.
