Gregory has scored five goals and provided two assists in 23 Championship starts for Millwall so far this season.

The former Mansfield Town player is a decent striker, and it would not be a bad idea for Derby to sign him, especially if they need not pay more than £500,000.

The Rams are going strong in the Championship at the moment and look set to finish in the playoffs at least.
