At 32-years-old it is perhaps something of a surprise to see Huddlestone extend his stay in the East Midlands. That said, his presence will give a young dressing room an injection of experience.

The veteran has played 26 times for the Rams this season, becoming a key player under the guidance boss Frank Lampard.

Huddlestone began his career with Rams before moving to Tottenham in 2005.

After 209 appearances for Spurs, he switched to Hull and played a further 161 times.

Following news of an extension to his contract, some supporters have taken to Twitter to offer their opinion.
