It is reported in the press this morning that the Clarets will offer Derby £500,000 for defender Dean Leacock.

The 24 year old started his career with Fulham and after two loan spells with Coventry City joined Derby County in August 2006 for £375,000.

He plays primarily at centre back but can also play at right back although is currently being used as a defensive midfielder.

The rumour reported in the Daily Star also suggests that we face competition from local rivals, Preston. Why is it always them?
