Derby chief executive Tom Glick insists the club are not "actively looking" to sell Rob Hulse despite being "fully aware" of the striker`s contract situation.

Hulse, who rejected a move to Middlesbrough last summer, has again been linked with a move away from Pride Park with Championship rivals Coventry and Leeds reportedly courting the 30-year-old. The former Crewe, West Brom, Leeds and Sheffield United striker has one year remaining on his current deal at Derby.

Glick told the Yorkshire Post: "There has been constant speculation about Rob but we are not actively looking to sell him. We are fully aware of his contract situation, as are other clubs. We are not in a position where we need to sell Rob, so I think it remains to be seen."
