Mellor can't wait to get going
Promising defender Kelvin Mellor is relieved to finally get his future sorted out and can now fully concentrate on Crewe Alexandra's upcoming return to League One.
The 21-year-old followed the example of highly-rated winger Byron Moore and signed a new two-year deal at Gresty Road earlier this week.
That finally ended weeks of recent speculation regarding his future, which further increased when Derby County stepped in with the offer of a three-year deal at Pride Park.
However, Mellor ignored the lure of the Championship and instead stuck with his hometown club after they revised their original offer.
"I am thrilled and I really cannot wait to get going again," Mellor told Alex's official website. "The club made me a very reasonable offer and I was delighted to sign it."
