The Derby Telegraph has reported that striker Matej Vydra could be available to leave Pride Park for a fee of around £7m – which is incredibly low considering the fact that the striker picked up the Golden Boot in the Championship last season.

The 26-year-old picked up player of the season for Derby County last year and also managed to pick up a Golden Boot award for the Championship, but with the Rams needing to cut costs after their failure to gain promotion last season, Frank Lampard may be forced to sell on of his prized assets for a mere fee of around £7m and Leeds United could be a very interested party in securing the strikers signature.

This news will most likely alert a wide range of both Championship and Premier League clubs who would most likely be interested in securing the signature of the prolific striker. Most recently, however, Leeds United have been a club who have been heavily linked with the forward.

With the West-Yorkshire side seemingly keen to close a deal that brings Uruguayan Abel Hernandez to Elland Road but with Vydra’s availability and his goalscoring prowess, Vydra himself could be making a move to Elland Road either with or without Hernandez for a cut-price bargain fee of around £7m.

Vyrda would be an absolute bargain for around £7m and with Leeds United’s reported interest in the striker, it would be amazing if the club weren’t to make a move for one of the Championships top talents in the coming days. Although Frank Lampard is looking to reshape his squad, losing Vydra would be something that any manager would not want.
