It keeps 33-year-old striker Bent and full-back Baird, 35, at Pride Park until the end of the 2017-18 season.

Bent first joined the Rams on loan from Aston Villa towards the end of the 2014-15 campaign and later made the move permanent.

Former Northern Ireland defender Baird has played 51 times for Derby after a move from West Bromwich Albion in 2015.
