According to the Scottish Sun, Livingston are holding out for £2 million for Derby County, Barnsley and Queens Park Rangers target Lyndon Dykes.

The Australia international has been heavily linked with a summer exit.

Dykes, who posted 12 goals and ten assists for the Scottish Premiership side this past season, has alerted a number of Championship clubs.

TEAMtalk claimed back in November how Derby, Blackburn and Cardiff City were among the Championship clubs leading the race.

But a recent report from the BBC claimed Barnsley saw an initial £1 million offer turned down.

Now, with QPR joining the race, the Scottish Sun say Livi are holding out for £2 million after turning down yet another offer in the region of £1.2 million from the Tykes.

If Derby are serious in their interest, perhaps now is the time to make a move.

Derby must look at bringing in another forward to lead the line next season.

Dykes, 24, stands at 6ft 2inch. He is quick, athletic and energetic off the ball. He could be exactly the sort of forward manager Phillip Cocu is searching for to spearhead his side.
