FL transfer latest: Derby County, Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday feature

Ross McCormack preparing to take a penalty for Leeds United

Derby County and Cardiff City want Leeds United striker, Queens Park rangers chase Getafe midfielder, Sheffield Wednesday look to bring back Wolverhampton Wanderers defender and Huddersfield Town midfielder gets targeted.

As the countdown to the summer transfer window opening begins, we take a look at the top five transfer rumours that have caught our attention this week.

Transfer story of the week:

According to the Daily Mail, Cardiff City and Derby County are amongst those in the race to sign Leeds United striker Ross McCormack this summer.

Leeds United rejected various offers in the region of £6 million in the January transfer window and according to the report could demand a figure of around £10 million.

Derby are reportedly said to only be interested if they win promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.

Queens Park Rangers after £3m Croatian

Queens Park Rangers are planning ahead for the summer by watching Getafe midfielder Sammir, according to the Daily Mail.

The Brazilian turned Croatian international moved to Getafe in Februrary but is reportedly interested in a move to England with the side three points above the relegation zone with one game left.

He scored 46 goals in 173 games for Dinamo Zagreb, however, has failed to make a similar impact in La Liga.

Norwich, Cardiff, Wolves and Boro all chasing Huddersfield Town midfielder Adam Clayton

A number of Championship clubs are reportedly interested in highly-rated Huddersfield midfielder Adam Clayton.

Brighton had a £1 million offer knocked back for the player in January, however, the bearded playmaker looks no closer to signing a new deal and with just 12-months left on his deal Huddersfield may cash in.

A number of the promotion favourites are said to be interested, including relegated sides Cardiff City and Norwich City which just adds to the doubt over Clayton signing a new deal.

Stuart Gray confims interest in Owls' former loan star Roger Johnson

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray has indicated he will look to bring back successful loan signing Roger Johnson this summer.

'He did well here and would be several options to have in mind, but you've got to have a few irons in the fire.

'When Dave Jones was here he wanted to extend Roger's loan, and so did I after taking over but then West Ham came in and they were paying a large chunk of his salary.'

Wolves boss Kenny Jackett admitted he will assess Johnson's future before pre-season starts and that there has been no word from West Ham over a future move.

Ipswich Town defender on Premier League wishlist

Leicester, along with West Ham, Southampton, Newcastle and West Brom are all reportedly interested in PFA Team of the Year left-back Aaron Cresswell.

The full-back has been heavily scouted by Premier League clubs in the past six months and manager Mick McCarthy has said previously admitted he is 'expecting' interest in the summer.
