Defender Chris Riggott signs Derby County deal

Manager Nigel Clough told the club websiteexternal-link: "We said all along that as long as he proved his fitness, we would get him signed up.

"Chris hasn't played in almost two years so we have to be a bit patient getting him back to match sharpness."
