FL transfer latest: Derby County, Leicester City, and QPR feature

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

Derby County set to lose 22-year-old Michael Jacobs to Wolves, QPR look at Kenwyne Jones, Leicester City chase £1m SPL striker, Brighton talk to Cardiff front man and Burnley bid for Middlesbrough striker.

1) Reports from journalist Sean Taylor suggest that Derby County are set to lose 22-year-old talented winger Michael Jacobs to Wolverhampton Wanderers for 200k

Despite being relatively unproven at Championship level, Derby County fans will be disappointed about losing a young player that has showed a lot of promise in his time with the Rams. Jacobs went out on loan early in McClaren's reign after falling behind Ward, Dawkins, Russell and Bennett in the pecking order.

2) According to Sky Sports Leicester City are one of the clubs interested in Inverness striker Billy McKay. If true, it could mean that the Foxes may have to pay out up to £1m for a player they released for nothing in 2009.

McKay, 25, was released from Leicester without playing a first team game and now could look to become one of their big winter window signings. The Corby born striker has been in terrific form this season, scoring 17 goals in 22 games.

3) According to reports in The Stoke Sentinal Harry Redknapp could pursue interest in 29-year-old target man Kenwyne Jones.

Queens Park Rangers have been linked to a range of strikers this transfer window and all of them come from impressive backgrounds, which indicates they have big money to spend. Once considered a poor man's Drogba, the Stoke striker is still held in high regard from his previous stints at Championship level and could be quite a coup for the Hoops.

4) Alan Nixon has confirmed via twitter that Brighton and Hove Albion are already lining up Burnley target Ashley Barnes's replacement. The South Coast side are apparently in talks with a possible deal for 22-year-old Cardiff City striker Joe Mason.

The Plymouth born striker made a name for himself last season as a super sub, scoring a lot of important goals. Unfortunately for Mason, it looks as if his time in Wales is coming to an end, as the Bluebirds look to bring in Premier League proven players.

5) Despite Burnley's interest in Ashley Barnes, they are still considering making a move on Middlesbrough striker Lukas Jutkiewicz, according to Sky Sports reports.

The former Coventry City striker has been in frustrating form this season, scoring just once from his 51 shots on goal. Despite that, Burnley manager Sean Dyche must have seen something in him and has apparently made a bid.
