Derby boss Rooney targets Burnley fullback Bardsley

Derby boss Wayne Rooney wants to bring Phil Bardsley to the Rams — if the club is saved from relegation.

Boss Rooney and his former Manchester United team-mate are very close.

And he will be in for the defender, 36, when his Burnley contract ends, says The Sun.

Rooney hopes American Chris Kirchner takes over the Rams and allows him to make fresh signings next season.

Derby gave their survival hopes a shot in the arm on Friday with a 2-1 win over probable champs Fulham.
