The young centre-back, who captained the Wales Under 21 side in their friendly international against Austria earlier this week, celebrated his 17th Birthday by signing a two-year contract at Pride Park on Friday.

"To captain an international side and sign a professional contract with the Rams has made it an incredible few days for me," said Nyatanga.

"Brian Flynn showed real faith in me and gave me the confidence to believe in myself.

"It's the same at Derby, they believe in me and now it's up to me to repay that faith by proving I am worthy of a place in the senior side."
