Busy activity from Derby County has Leeds United fans hoping that a deal for Matej Vydra could be back on.
Derby are linked with a £8 million move for Martyn Waghorn, with the East Anglian Times reporting they are closing in on the Ipswich Town attacker.
It is a hefty fee for Derby to be paying out, especially with Peterborough's Jack Marriott linked, BBC Sport reported.
If Derby were to sign one, let alone both, then Vydra and his big wages would have to be moved on.
Leeds' talks with Vydra were said to have broken down earlier this month by his demands, the Yorkshire Evening Post reported.
Yet time is running out for both Vydra to clinch his next move, and he has not been able to find the wages he wants elsewhere.
This gives Leeds a chance that he may lower his demands and become a viable option again.
Supporters are growing confident that a deal could soon be struck...
Derby to get Marriott, Leeds to get Vydra. Surely Derby will sort some kind of deal to get Vydra out the door now #LUFC— Jordan (@JordanALAW) July 25, 2018
With Waghorn Derby bound surely the Vydra saga will be sorted one way or another #LUFC— Lee (@LufcLee19) July 25, 2018
If Derby are serious about Waghorn at 8 million, Vydra will leave. Still strongly believe he will be our player #lufc— Sam Snaddon (@Sam_Snaddon) July 24, 2018
