Rumour Mill-Finger on the Hulse?
Brian Laws is believed to be interested in bringing 30 year old Derby County striker Rob Hulse to Turf Moor on loan.
It would appear the Rams have turned the idea of a loan down but they could be tempted by a cash offer to make a move permanent.
The Mirror believe the Clarets want to follow the loan option with a view to a permanent deal in the Summer.
It is possible Hulse is on Burnley's radar as a contingency in case a loan extension for David Nugent can not be agreed with financially striken club, Portsmouth.
However the Mirror believes our interest stems from the fact we could be about to release striker,Steven Thompson and allow him to go QPR on loan for the rest of the season.
Hulse signed for Derby from Sheffield United in July 2008 for £1.75m and has previously played for Crewe, WEst Brom and Leeds United.
There is no doubting the strike power of Hulse and he scores on average one goal in every three game which included his last one in their 1-0 home victory against local rivals Nottingham Forest at the weekend.
