Eustace and Ward were due to be out of contract this summer but will now stay with the club for at least another season.

Meanwhile, head coach Steve McClaren wants to keep Lee Naylor, with whmo the club are currently in discussions over a new deal.

The Rams missed out on promotion to the Premier League by losing to Queens Park Rangers in the dying moments of Saturday's Championship playoff final.
