Theo Robinson: Derby are open to offers for striker

Derby are willing to let Robinson leave Pride Park this summer with the player not figuring in Nigel Clough's long-term plans.

Robinson spent the final three months of last season on loan at Huddersfield the summer signings of Johnny Russell and Chris Martin has pushed him further down the pecking order.

The 24-year-old impressed at Derby during the first half of last season scoring nine goals before finding himself frozen out of things under Clough.

Robinson is a proven performer in the Championship and several sides in the market for a striker are weighing up moves for the Jamaican international.

The likes of Leeds, Burnley and Middlesbrough are all thought to be monitoring Robinson's situation.
