Derby County are one of several EFL sides said keen on Danny Rowe, and a winger of their own could be on his way out of Pride Park.

Derby County are considering a move for Macclesfield Town winger Danny Rowe, according to a report on page 46 of this week's Sunday People.

Rowe began life at Stockport County and fell down the leagues with the Hatters before moving on to Barrow and Fylde, in between separate spells at Macclesfield.

However, the 24-year-old has impressed in this season's National League, scoring six goals and creating another five in 25 outings, and is said to be valued around the £100,000 mark.

Walsall, Port Vale and Barnet have already lodged bids for Rowe, according to the People, but Derby would almost certainly find themselves in pole position were they to follow up their alleged interest with an approach.

Steve McClaren's side, who have been strongly linked with a move for Crystal Palace winger Bakary Sako, could lose another wide man, Johnny Russell, this month, with Birmingham City lining up a £2 million bid according to the Sun on Sunday.

McClaren enjoyed an almost flawless start to his second spell in charge at Pride Park, although back-to-back defeats have left the Rams five points adrift of a play-off place.

Should Derby County take a punt on Rowe?
