Huddersfield have had a £7.2m bid for Tom Ince rejected by Derby, according to Sky sources.
We understand that the newly-promoted Premier League club are likely to return with an improved offer for the former England U21 winger, as they look to strengthen their squad.
The 24-year-old Ince is one of the top attacking talents in the Championship and scored 15 times last season, with six assists.
Having begun his career with Liverpool, Ince enjoyed a successful spell with Blackpool, before moving on to Hull, and then joining Derby in the summer of 2015 after a successful loan stint.
As well as Ince, Huddersfield have been linked with midfielder Aaron Mooy, who may be set to sign from Manchester City after impressing while on loan last season.
