Derby swoop for Stubbs

Football Transfer Centre

Derby have completed a notable swoop as they signed Everton defender Alan Stubbs on an 18 month deal. The central defender had been a target for Paul Jewell for some time.

Derby boss Paul Jewell believes Stubbs' experience will be invaluable as the promoted side aim to bridge a 12 point gap to safety.

"It's a terrific capture for us. Stubbsy is a first-class pro, someone who has been there, seen it and done it" Jewell said.

"I'm delighted to have him on board and he will add experience and steel to the backline.

"He will train with us on Friday and is very much in contention for a place in the team on Saturday."
