James Nursey writing for the Daily Mirror today suggests that Burnley have agreed £1.5 million for Derby County striker, Rob Hulse

The Clarets were linked with the 30 year old striker earlier this week as reported by Vital Burnley in the following article:

Rumour Mill-Finger on the Hulse Again?

Hulse signed for Derby from Sheffield United in July 2008 for £1.75m and has previously played for Crewe, West Brom and Leeds United. The striker scored 12 goals for the Rams last season and has one year left on his contract.

Although a fee appears to have been agreed between the two clubs both Brian Laws and Rob Hulse are currently on holiday, so a deal is not expected to be finalised until next month.

It is thought by the Mirror that Hulse is being lined up as a replacement for Steven Fletcher who is currently interesting a number of Premier League clubs including so far, Wolves, Birmingham, West Ham and Bolton.
