Hull City agree fee to sign Derby County's Jeff Hendrick - sources

Hull City have agreed a fee for Derby County midfielder Jeff Hendrick, sources close to the club have told ESPN FC.

Hendrick's future at Derby has been the subject of speculation following his impressive performances for Republic of Ireland at Euro 2016 in France this summer.

Derby have already rejected three bids from Burnley for Hendrick and Hull are hoping to steal in and beat the Clarets to Hendrick's signature.

Hull are desperate to bolster their threadbare squad before Wednesday's transfer deadline having started the season with just 13 fit senior professionals.

The Tigers are yet to sign a new player and if Hendrick comes through his medical and agrees personal terms he could become the first of many new faces this week.
