Derby County have signed Stoke defender Ryan Shotton on a two-and-a-half-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

Shotton, 26, originally signed for Steve McClaren's men on loan in August, but he has now completed a deal which keeps him at the iPro Stadium until the summer of 2017.

Rams head coach McClaren said: "We're pleased to welcome Ryan Shotton to the club on a permanent basis.

"He's shown he's an important member of the squad with his versatility."
