Jeff Hendrick Expected To Make Premier League Move Today

Jeff Hendrick Expected To Make Premier League Move Today

After his starring performance for Ireland at Euro 2016, speculation about Jeff Hendrick's future has been constant.

He was linked with a number of Premier League clubs - including Burnley and Middlesbrough - and what would have been a remarkable move to Galatasaray.

According to the Sun, Hendrick's future will be resolved today when he completes a move to another newly-promoted side - Hull.

Despite being shorn of bodies to begin the season, Hull have enjoyed an excellent start. They beat Leicester and Swansea and only lost out to Man Utd via a late Marcus Rashford winner.

They have now beaten Burnley to Hendrick's signature after topping Sean Dyche's side's bid for the 24-year-old. The fee is said to be £10 million. Hull are also said to have made the Dubliner a 'lucrative' contract offer.

Hendrick is just off the back of an average campaign for Derby. He started 22 games for Derby last season, compared to 34 the previous season. He scored twice in 2015/16, compared to nine times in 2014/15. His decrease in starts was primarily down to him falling out of favour with then manager Paul Clement.

This season has already been hampered by a hamstring injury. Hendrick - who has made just two starts for Derby - was forced out of his side's 2-0 loss to Barnsley a fortnight ago after just 11 minutes.
