HITC Sport understands Sheffield United have enquired about the Derby striker, as they struggle to agree a fee for Martyn Waghorn of Ipswich Town.

Nugent, who has scored 15 goals in 57 games for Derby, is one of four senior strikers on the books at Pride Park, along with Matej Vydra, Chris Martin, Cameron Jerome and former Blade Nick Blackman.
