Derby County are reportedly close to signing Martyn Waghorn from Ipswich Town in a bid worth £8million.

Waghorn scored 16 Championship goals for Ipswich last season following his summer move from Rangers.

And the Daily Mail has reported the Rams are in advanced talks to bring the 28-year-old to Pride Park.

Sheffield United are also said to be in the hunt for the former Leicester City man.

“Nothing’s changed since the weekend,” Ipswich boss Paul Hurst told the East Anglian Daily Times on Tuesday night.

“If they are then it’s news to me. If anything has changed then I am sure, when I switch my phone on, then I’ll be getting a call.

“I’ve spoken with Martyn. I’m not going to dilvuge right at this moment in time what that conversation was. But we have had a conversation.
