30 year old Derby County forward Rob Hulse has only 12 months left on his contract and it looks like the Rams are ready to cash in on the striker this summer.
The Mirror today states that Derby have put their star striker up for sale and expect to receive £1.5million.
According to the paper official enquiries from both QPR and Burnley for Hulse have been received by the club although it is suggested that both Championship rivals think the price tag to be too high considering the player will be on a Bosman next summer.
Hulse signed for Derby from Sheffield United in July 2008 for £1.75m and has previously played for Crewe, West Brom and Leeds United.
This is not the first time we have been linked with Hulse. Brian Laws was understood to have put in a loan bid for him in the New Year with a view to him signing a permanent deal this summer. Derby County were understood to reject the offer along with a similar one from Stoke City.It wasn't clear at the time though whether our interest was more related to the possibility of losing David Nugent and needing an urgent replacement.
In the end of course Portsmouth late in the day agreed to a loan extension for Nugent. Nugent though returned to Fratton Park at the end of this season and is now seeking a move to another Premier League club with Owen Coyle's Bolton being recently linked.
Brian Laws would therefore now appear to wish to rekindle his interest in Hulse.
Hulse has been Derby's top scorer for two consecutive campaigns and last season finished with a tally of 12 goals.
