Cotton signs on dotted line
The 20-year-old has progressed through the ranks at Derby and has appeared for the limited-overs sides recently, making two Twenty20 appearances and four in the Royal London One-Day Cup - including the quarter-final defeat to Nottinghamshire on Tuesday.
Cotton said: "If you'd told me at the start of the year that I'd make first team debuts in both one-day competitions - and earn a professional contract - I'd have been delighted with that, so it's been a great year."
