Derby County will look to bring Norwich City striker Cameron Jerome to Pride Park in the January transfer window according to John Percy of the Telegraph.
The reliable journalist revealed through his Twitter account that talks between the clubs are ongoing and that the 31-year old would command a fee between £1.5-2m. Percy also added that former club Cardiff City are interested in the striker.

Jerome has fallen completely out of favour under Daniel Farke in recent weeks and made the last of his 15 appearances just under a month ago, coming on for eight minutes against Leeds.
Since that match at Elland Road, the Canaries have played six games and Jerome hasn’t made the match day squad for five of those games.
The ex-Middlesbrough man has just one goal to his name this season in the Championship and will almost certainly be allowed to leave this month.
Despite boasting a range of strikers, Gary Rowett is keen to add to his squad this month and reports suggest that Chris Martin could be departing Pride Park and Jerome would be his replacement.
Cameron Jerome would bring real pace and power to the Derby squad and despite having several options up front, that’s something Rowett doesn’t have at the minute.
Therefore, for a relatively modest fee it would be a good move for the Rams. Even though he has struggled this season, Jerome has proven himself in the Championship over the years.
It looks as though a deal would suit all three parties and it seems inevitable.
