Gary Rowett signs new Derby deal to end Stoke speculation

Derby manager Gary Rowett has signed a new contract with the club to end any uncertainty regarding his future.

However, the Rams announced on Tuesday that Rowett has put pen to paper on a new three-and-a-half-year deal at Pride Park, just 10 months after he was appointed by the Sky Bet Championship club.
