Derby County are not interested in signing Norwich striker Nelson Oliveira this month.

According to The Derby Telegraph, Derby boss Gary Rowett is a fan of Oliveira, but is not looking to add him to his squad.

He is, however, interested in Cameron Jerome. Oliveira is currently ahead of Jerome in the pecking order at Norwich, leaving him open to a move away, with Derby keen to offer him an escape route.

There were reports earlier this week that Derby had made a £8m offer for Oliveira, though The Telegraph claim that these reports were far from accurate.

Oliveira has scored 23 goals for Norwich since the start of last season, with 15 last term and seven up to now this season.

The Portuguese forward has come under criticism for his performances of late, with only two goals in his last 13 matches for the club.

This came after five goals in his first eight games of the season.
