Last updated : 17 July 2008 By Jamie Furniss
The United Gaffer Kevin Blackwell has expressed that the former Crewe, West Brom and Leeds front man is on the verge of singing for the recently relegated side Derby County.

Blackwell said: "We have agreed a figure with Derby and Rob is travelling to see them as we speak." Hulse has left the Blades pre-season training in Holland to speak to the Rams.

Rob scored 8 goals in the Premier League two seasons ago and made a massive influence on the Blades fight for survival in the Premier League. However since returning in December he hasn't quite cut it and the Blades have agreed a fee for the 28 year old.
