Derby County captain Richard Keogh has posed with the club's chief executive Sam Rush and manager Steve McClaren after agreeing a new deal.
The 28-year-old's current deal was set to expire in the summer of 2015, but now he has committed himself to the club for an additional two years.
"Richard is the last one of a list the club wanted to deal with," Simpson said. "It's taken a little bit longer than we all would have hoped, but it hasn't had any bearing on his performances."
Keogh has played 10 times for Derby this season, as he has helped then to eighth in the table, five points behind current leaders Nottingham Forest.
