Derby County boss Steve McClaren has made West Bromwich Albion midfielder George Thorne a prime target this summer.

The Daily Mail says Thorne, the 21-year-old on loan from West Bromwich Albion who shone in the play-off final, is the club's prime transfer target.

Brought in at the end of January he quickly became a vital player but his performances might have convinced West Brom to retain his services or alerted other Premier League sides to his ability.
