There have been contrasting views on Stephen Pearson’s Derby situation recently, but Pearson insists that staying at Derby is his preferred option.

Nigel Clough had said that a deal was close but then his agent Willie McKay said that he wanted a longer contract than the one-year on offer so would study others available to him but the 27-year-old says he wants to stay at Pride Park:

“It is a great club and I am delighted to be here. Hopefully, I can stay here a bit longer.

The manager here is trying to assemble a squad. I want to stay and, hopefully, we can get things sorted sooner rather than later.

“I have had a few injuries, but I have got a clean bill of health now and I aim to stay in the team longer.”

Pearson was talking to the Evening Telegraph.

It seems fairly simple really. If Pearson wants to stay and we’re not far off a deal then the Scotland international should stay with us?
