Burnley have agreed a club record £10m fee to sign Republic of Ireland midfielder Jeff Hendrick from Derby.

The 24-year-old is having a medical with the Premier League club and is expected to complete his move to Turf Moor on transfer deadline day.

The Clarets had a bid for Hendrick turned down earlier this summer.

Hendrick had an impressive Euro 2016 campaign in June, helping the Republic of Ireland progress out of the group stage.

A product of the Derby academy, he made his Rams debut in April 2011 and has gone on to score 27 goals in 214 games.

Burnley’s previous record signing came earlier this month when they signed Belgium midfielder Steven Defour for £8m from Anderlecht.
