Burnley are now in pole position to sign Jeff Hendrick from Derby County, though the Rams have had no contact from Wolverhampton Wanderers or Fulham over Chris Martin.

Hendrick had been tipped for a switch to Hull City, but it is Sean Dyche's men who are leading the chase for the Derby man.

According to the BBC, a fee of around £10m has been mooted, a figure which Derby believe represents good business for the Irishman.

Meanwhile, despite Wolves and Fulham being strongly linked, no offer has yet been made for Martin by either of the two clubs, which means they are leaving it late if they do intend to swoop for him before the transfer window slams shut tomorrow night.

Hendrick is a product of Derby's youth set-up and rose through the ranks to make his senior debut in 2010.


The midfielder has been capped on 25 occasions by the Republic of Ireland since winning his first cap in 2013 on the back of good form with the Rams.

Martin meanwhile joined Derby, initially on loan, from Norwich City in 2013.

A product of Norwich's youth system, the striker has won eight caps for Scotland.
