Derby County have had two loan offers rejected for Queens Park Rangers wingers Junior Hoilett and Matt Phillips, reports Sports Mole.
Hull City and West Bromwich Albion are both also interested in the duo, but QPR have said they’re only prepared to listen to permanent offers for their pacy wingers.
Phillips and Hoilett have both struggled to nail down first teams sports during Rangers’ Premier League campaign, both only making a handful for appearances this term after being major influences during their promotion campaigns.
Derby are keen to add a winger to their ranks after Jordan Ibe was recalled from his loan spell by parent club Liverpool.
Ibe had a first team spot in the Derby eleven and they are in need of a adequate replacement for the promising winger.
Wigan are also reportedly chasing a loan deal for Phillips as they lost Shaun Maloney this week to MLS side Chicago Fire. They’ll look to climb out of the relegation zone in the Sky Bet Championship.
Derby have already been very active during the January transfer window and have already brought in Darren Bent on loan from Aston Villa, Stephan Warnock, who was signed from Leeds United and Ryan Shotton permanently from Stoke, after an initial loan spell.
Derby’s last game was in the FA Cup against rivals Chesterfield, where they triumphed 2-0.
Darren Bent scored his first goal in a Derby shirt in the 20th minute before Will Hughes doubled the advantage after 82 minutes. They drew fellow Championship side Reading in the next round which means they will play Reading at least four times this season, unless it goes to a replay.
Derby are currently sat in fifth place in the Sky Bet Championship on 48 points, but a win tonight and they could be back up to first.
