Derby midfielder and Liverpool target trolls Manchester United on Twitter

Will Hughes of Derby County

Derby County midfielder Will Hughes, a reported target of Liverpool, has taken to Twitter to reveal a 'rumour' he had heard - although, we think he may be joking...

Will Hughes, a self-confessed Liverpool fan, has a reputation on Twitter as a wind-up merchant.

He has quickly endeared himself to the Liverpool supporters who were quick to use the reply button to his tweet as a chance to encourage him to move to his boyhood club. Although, it probably should be Rodgers they try and encourage to move on this particular transfer.

It isn't the first time he has took to the social networking site to bask in Manchester United's downfalls either. Last season, he was seen on Twitter basking in the Red Devil's defeat at the hands of Real Madrid in the Champions League:

Regardless of his previous tweets, it's not only Liverpool that are interested in the talented 19-year-old with reports also linking him to Manchester United.

If that was the case, he certainly hasn't done himself any favours winning over the United supporters, if they are in fact interested. Although, it has to be said the smart money would be on him moving to Liverpool after he leaves Derby with rumours of a first option agreement in place.

Nevertheless, It's not only United that have been stung by the young midfielder's tweets in the past and he even provoked a Twitter war with world renowned singer-songwriter Jake Bugg:
