Derby County are reportedly in advanced talks to sign Burnley captain Jason Shackell.

The Rams have made Shackell a priority signing this summer and now look likely to land the 31-year-old, although a fee has yet to be agreed.

Derby had a bid of £1.5m rising to £2m turned down last month and are thought to have had at least two more offers for Shackell also rebuffed.

Shackell was signed from Derby three years ago for £1.1m.
