Derby to beat Hull to signing West Ham defender Burke

West Ham United defender Reece Burke is set to move to Derby County.

The Sun says Derby boss Frank Lampard has come in at the eleveth hour to try to hijack Burke's £1.5million move to Championship rivals Hull City.

Burke, 21, was all set to join City on Monday after leaving West Ham's pre-season training camp in Switzerland to fly home for a medical.

But Derby have made an improved offer and West Ham fan Burke is also tempted by Lampard's Hammers connections.

Burke would be Lampard's biggest signing so far having taken on former Arsenal forward Aaron Eyoma on a free transfer after a trial.
