Liverpool must cough up £15 million to land Derby County midfielder Will Hughes.

The People says the Rams will insist on a season-long loan back being part of any deal if Reds boss Brendan Rogers does meet their valuation.

The England prospect has previously been touted as a long-term successor to Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.

But Derby are keen to keep hold of the star for another season as Nigel Clough looks to push the club further up the Championship table.
