CRAIG Bryson has signed a new five-year deal at Derby County to end uncertainty over his future at the club.

The 27-year-old midfielder was wanted by newly promoted Burnley and had also been linked with a move to London to join big money Queen’s Park Rangers.

Burnley believed a clause in the Scottish international’s contract allowed them to sign him for £750,000 and it was reported he had held talks with the Lancashire club.

Derby rejected Burnley’s offer and said they were discussing a contract extension with the player.

The news that Bryson is staying is a huge boost ahead of the Championship campaign.

He scored 16 goals last season as the Rams finished third, only to lose to QPR in the play-off final.

His contract now runs to 2019.

He follows Jake Buxton, Will Hughes and Jeff Hendrick in signing new long-term deals at the iPro Stadium as boss Steve McClaren targets promotion in the coming season.

Defender Zak Whitbread has also penned a new contract, as has veteran midfielder John Eustace.
