Derby County manager Wayne Rooney is eyeing a Manchester United reunion at the club following his interest in Burnley right-back Phil Bardsley. Wayne Rooney is said to be keen on the free transfer signing of the experienced Bardsleyas stated by the report from Derbyshire Live.

The Clarets needed to match the result of Leeds United on the final day of the season to avoid the drop to the English Championship, but they were unable to do so after losing 2-1 at home to Newcastle United, while Leeds United won by the same 2-1 scoreline over nine-man Brentford who had SergiCanos sent off in the second half for two yellow cards and KristofferAjer had to go off due to injury with three substitutions made.
