Derby County are close to agreeing a deal with Leicester to sign striker Tom Lawrence, according to Sky sources.

The fee would be around £7m, but we understand that Derby also have other strikers on their target list, and there are still a number of hurdles to cross before any deal can be completed.

The Wales international started his career at Manchester United and had loan spells at Carlisle and Yeovil Town before he joined Leicester on a permanent deal in 2014.

However, he was sent out on loan again, spending time at Rotherham, Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City.

The 23-year-old scored 11 goals in 36 appearances while on a season-long loan at Ipswich last year.

Lawrence has not made a Premier League start for the Foxes, coming on just three times as a substitute. He has made only one start for the club in the FA Cup.

Derby have signed Tom Huddlestone, Andre Wisdom and Curtis Davies this summer.
