Derby County and Fulham are set to battle it out for Preston North End winger Callum Robinson, according to HITC Sport.

The Rams reportedly want Robinson to fill the void left by Tom Ince's record departure to Premier League newcomers Huddersfield Town - and have already had a bid rejected by Preston.

Championship rivals Fulham are also understood to be monitoring developments at Deepdale, along with several Premier League clubs including Burnley - who have cash to spend following Andre Gray's £18 million move to Watford yesterday.

Robinson joined Preston last summer from Aston Villa on a permanent deal, and notched 11 goals in all competitions last term, including the equaliser in November's 1-1 draw with Burton Albion.

Aston Villa are being linked with a move for West Ham United midfielder Robert Snodgrass, according to the Daily Mail.

The 29-year-old only joined West Ham last January from Villa's Championship rivals Hull, but they are open to offers for the Scotland international.

Villa, however, would need to agree a loan move with a view to a permanent deal to avoid falling foul of financial fair play restrictions.

Snodgrass has endured a torrid time at the London Stadium - failing to score for the Hammers following his £10 million move from the Tigers and making just 15 appearances, with eight of those coming off the bench.

Villa could see one of their own leave the club soon too, according to the Birmingham Mail.

Leandro Bacuna is close to leaving the club for Championship rivals Reading - despite the Royals having a £1 million bid for the utility man rejected last month.

The Birmingham club are willing to sell the midfielder, who did not travel with the group for the 2-1 win over Colchester United in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

The two clubs are in discussions over the move but a fee has yet to be agreed, with Villa waiting for Reading to up their offer.

Hull City signed Sebastian Larsson on a free transfer from Sunderland yesterday - and he could go straight into the team to face the Brewers on Saturday.

The former Arsenal man moves to Hull having spent the last six years at the Stadium of Light, and will add experience to a Hull side with 90 caps for international team Sweden to his name.

"I’m delighted to be here and I am really looking forward to this fresh challenge," he said.

"I had some options to consider, but I felt this was the best move for me to make and I can’t wait to get started now."
