Extending Jeff Hendrick's contract


Recommended Posts

Has anything been said by the club about this?

He must be attracting a lot of attention and he's only signed until the end of this season.

We don't want another good young player to leave or, if he does, to leave without getting full value for him e.g. Tom Huddlestone.

I have a feeling that if it was going to reach an easy and happy conclusion he would have signed an extension around the same time as O'Brien.

This could end in tears...

Or maybe as he is on his first senior contract, the club have the option to extend it ( it would make sense to have that clause in a young players contract so you have the choice to extend if they are good enough) and they don't want to just extend it but are putting a contract together that will be attractive enough for him to want to stay. Or they are waiting to see if his form continues before taking up the option.

Or maybe waiting to see where we finish the season before taking up the option (if there is one)

DERBY County are looking to extend Jeff Hendrick's contract.

The 19-year-old midfielder has started the last eight games and caught the eye with his performances.

His current deal has this year and next to run and the club are keen to tie down the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international for longer.

Two other young players, Mark O'Brien and John Brayford, have signed new deals in the past two months.

"We have a policy at the club of rewarding young players once we have identified that these are the sort of lads we want around," said manager Nigel Clough.

"We have done this already with Mark O'Brien and John Brayford – and Jeff will be no different.
