Watch Lee Grant talk about signing a new contract with Derby County

7 January 2015

Derby County goalkeeper Lee Grant believes his best years are still ahead of him after signing a new two-and-a-half year contract with the Rams.

The 31-year-old has committed his future to the club until the end of the 2016/17 season.

County boss Steve McClaren told Derby's official website: "We're pleased that Lee Grant has signed a new contract with the club.

"He is a very important part of the framework of our side, not just as a goalkeeper keeping the ball out of the net but in terms of starting moves from the back.

"He has been in outstanding form throughout our time at the club and off the field he plays an important role as a senior player."

Grant added: “I’m really pleased to have put pen to paper on a new deal. They (the Club) have extended it and I was more than happy to do that. I am pleased that the Club wanted to keep me round for a bit longer.

“At 31, I still feel as though I have got my best years ahead of me. I have got plenty that I want to achieve in the game and my aim over the next two-and-a-half years of this contract is to try and achieve the majority of those things at this football club.”
