Derby County striker Rob Hulse is being linked with a shock loan move to Burnley according to reports.

Clarets boss Brian Laws has contacted Rams manager Nigel Clough to see if the 30-year old is available for a loan deal with a view to a permanent deal if they remain in the top flight.

Laws is hoping for a new striker at Turf Moor and is believed to be keen on the former Crewe, West Brom, Leeds and Sheffield United talisman.
