Round, 44, and McClaren were also both part of Derby's backroom staff between 1995 and 1999.

McClaren, whose side are third in the Championship, added: "At the present moment myself, Paul Simpson and Eric Steele work with the first team, while Lee Glover and Steve Taylor oversee the Under 21s, so we felt that sometimes we need some more 'individual attention'.
