Derby County are said to have put a contract offer forwards to Martyn Waghorn in an attempt to keep the player at the club, as per a recent report by Derbyshire Live.
The 31-year-old is set to see his current deal with the Rams expire today and is said to be in talks with Coventry City over a potential move across the Midlands to join the Sky Blues.
Waghorn was a regular feature for County last term as they just staved off the threat of relegation from the Sky Bet Championship, with the South Shields born attacker notching up five goals and four assists in 32 games across all competitions.
The striker’s two goals on the final day against Sheffield Wednesday helped to save Wayne Rooney’s men from going down and it appears that the Rams would be keen for the veteran to stay put at Pride Park for another season or two.

At present Waghorn is set to depart the club after making 123 appearances and scoring 30 goals since his move from Ipswich Town in the summer of 2018.
It will be intriguing to see where Waghorn ends up this summer, as he arguably still has a lot to offer at Championship level despite not enjoying the best of seasons last term.
Rooney clearly sees him as an asset that he wishes to hold onto and it will be interesting to see if he signs the new deal which has been put on the table.
Derby are still in a bit of a mess off the pitch, which could potentially hamper the chances of Waghorn staying put.
At the age of 31, he certainly has a big decision to make over his future, with the chance to move to Coventry surely being an attractive option at this stage of his seasoned career.
