Rams' gaffer Steve McClaren is reportedly in the hunt to acquire the services of Burnley's on loan central striker Lukas Jutkiewicz
The Burnley striker has rediscovered his shooting boots since his loan move to St
Andrews.He has netted five goals in his last eleven appearances for Birmingham City, helping to fire the Blues into contention for a Championship play off place.It is reported that Burnley manager Sean Dyche allowed Jutkiewicz to seal a transfer day deadline loan deal to Birmingham City back in August and an agreement was made that would allow the Blues to make the deal a permanent one in the January transfer window if the loan worked out.Jutkiewicz is now fully recovered from a knee injury that kept him out of the Clarets' line up for almost a year, he is leading the Blues line brilliantly at present and scoring regularly.A fee believed to be in the region of Â£2 million pounds is not an issue for Derby County but the Blues have first shout on Jutkiewicz's services, following the hatching of the initial loan agreement between Sean Dyche and Gary Rowett.The Burnley gaffer however has a hard earned reputation for straight talking and straight dealing
It would therefore come as a major surprise if Jutkiewicz were to ultimately end up at the iPro stadium with ex-England boss McClaren
