Derby County manager Steve McClaren will reportedly sign a contract extension with the club before the start of their pre-season training.

Steve McClaren has reportedly agreed to sign a contract extension with Derby County after leading them to the Championship playoff final last season.

The Rams narrowly missed out on a place in the top flight for the 2014-15 season after losing to Queens Park Rangers at Wembley last month.

According to The Telegraph, the 53-year-old, who still has two years on his contract at the iPro Stadium, will pen an improved deal before the club begins its pre-season training next month.

Derby won 24 of their 41 matches under McClaren last season after he took over from Nigel Clough in September.
