Derby County signs Michael Jacobs

Midfielder Michael Jacobs joins Derby County today, after the club agreed on an undisclosed fee with Northampton Town.

Northamptonshire born Jacobs rejected an improved contract offer to stay at Sixfields.

"This news won't come as a surprise to anybody after Michael turned his contract down.

"We respect his wish to make the move and we wish him well in his future career. Now we move on and this gives us the opportunity to strengthen the squad further ahead of next season."

– Aidy Boothroyd, Northampton Town
