Mellor decision to stay leaves Clough unhappy

Crewe Alexandra's young defender Kelvin Mellor has signed a new two-year deal at Gresty Road after turning down a move to Derby County.

Alex decided to improve their original offer after the Rams previously tried to lure him away with the prospect of a three-year deal at Pride Park.

Mellor is currently on the mend from a recent ankle operation and missed the weekend opening pre-season friendly victory at Congleton Town.

However, Rams boss Nigel Clough appeared far from pleased at the final decision of the 21-year-old as he told BBC Radio Derby: "We had a good meeting with Kelvin, his dad and couple of representatives. I think they spent quite a bit of the meeting telling us how utterly dismayed and dejected they were about his treatment at Crewe.

"Crewe put a year on the table which they felt was disrespectable in terms of the terms," he continued. "When he turns round then and says he's going to stay at Crewe we're very surprised. He even got to the stage where he said he felt the manager was picking his son over Kelvin."

Despite those claims it comes as more great news for League One newcomers Crewe, who also re-signed highly-rated forward Byron Moore at the weekend.
