Derby County have extended the contracts of Michael Johnson and Lee Holmes.

The pair will now remain with the club until the summer of 2008 after they signed new deals on Thursday.

Rams boss Phil Brown told the club's official website that he was thrilled to have seen them commit their futures to the club - particularly as they would have been out of contract during the summer.

"Jonno and Lee are at opposite ends of the scale in terms of age and experience," he explained.

"Jonno has seen it, done it, got the t-shirt. He knows the game very well at this level and hopefully he can help take us up to the next level.

"It is great news for us as he is the type of guy you can build a back four on."
