Leeds boosted in striker chase

Published Add your comment

Derby first-team coach Gary Crosby admits the club may sell Rob Hulse amidst reports Leeds are eyeing up a bid to the bring the striker back for a second spell at Elland Road.

Hulse enjoyed a successful three-month loan spell with United back in 2005 before penning a permanent deal, spending just one season with the Yorkshire club ahead of a move to then Premier League side Sheffield United.

The 30-year-old later signed for the Rams in the summer of 2008 and he could find himself on the move again over the coming months.

Crosby told the Derby telegraph: "As much as we'd like to keep Rob, financially, we will maybe look to sell him."

He added: "You do hear various things but it is only talk at the moment. There is nothing definite. Other clubs will be active in the market and most clubs want a striker who is going to get you some goals."

Crosby would not commit on the size of fee Derby would command for their top scorer from the previous two seasons, adding: "It's difficult to actually put a figure on it. There are many different aspects of a deal that you have to look at. So we'll just look at every offer if and when they come in."
