Derby County have re-signed Lee Grant after he rejected a new deal at Burnley.

Goalkeeper Lee Grant has reportedly turned down a new contract at Burnley in order to rejoin his former club Derby County.

The 30-year-old is believed to have agreed on a three-year deal at Pride Park after rejecting the chance to sign fresh terms at Turf Moor.

Grant, who was voted as the Clarets player of the season for the recently finished campaign, arrives at Derby on a free transfer, according to Sky Sports News.

The shot-stopper began his career with the Rams before leaving to join Sheffield Wednesday in 2007 after making 79 appearances.

There was rumoured interest in Grant from a number of other clubs, but Derby have won that race with Nigel Clough securing his first signing of the summer.
