Defender Eiran Cashin has committed his long-term future to Derby County by signing a new contract.

A graduate of Derby’s Academy set-up, Cashin has signed a deal which will run until the end of the 2026/27 season.

The 22-year-old has been a regular in the Rams’ backline since making his senior bow in the second half of the 2021/22 season.

Since then, the centre-back has gone on to record 106 appearances for Derby’s first-team and has also been capped by the Republic of Ireland at Under-21 level.

Cashin, the winner of the Sammy Crooks Young Player of the Season for the 2022/23 campaign, has established himself as a near ever-present in the defence for the last two years.

The Academy graduate has also scored five goals in a Derby shirt, with the most recent coming in the final game of 2023 when he netted the winner in the thrilling 3-2 comeback victory at Oxford United.

Cashin, who joined the club at Under-11s level, was a member of Derby’s title-winning Under-18 squad during the 2018/19 campaign and he also starred in the UEFA Youth League in the following season.

He is the third Rams player to pen a new deal in recent weeks after seeing Ryan Nyambe and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing sign contract extensions.
