Jerome, 32, left Norwich for Derby in a £1.5m move in January, but has yet to play under new Rams’ boss Frank Lampard, who has a fleet of expensive attacking options at his disposal.

The ex-Canary hitman scored six goals in 20 games (10 starts) after arriving at Pride Park last season.

According to the Daily Mirror, Town are one of a number of clubs – including QPR, Reading, Hull, Blackburn and Reading – in the market for Jerome.
