Derby bring in centre-back Stubbs
Alan Stubbs
Stubbs began his career at Bolton
Derby have signed Everton defender Alan Stubbs on an 18-month contract.

Manager Paul Jewell, who lured the centre-back to the Rams for no fee, said he was delighted with the capture of the 36-year-old Merseysider.

"It's a terrific capture for us. Stubbsy is a first class pro and someone who has been there," he said.

"He has seen it and done it. I am delighted to have him on board and believe he will add experience and steel to our backline."

606: DEBATE

Stubbs is set to be included in the squad for the match at Birmingham on Saturday.

The defender began his career as a trainee at Bolton and spent six years there until moving to Celtic in 1996.

During his five-year stay in Glasgow he twice overcame testicular cancer, before he was transferred to Everton in 2001.

After a move to Sunderland in 2005 that saw him make just 10 appearances he moved back to Everton in January 2006.
