Derby County have confirmed their interest in re-signing former captain Jason Shackell from Burnley, reports BBC Radio Derby.

Shackell, 31, was Rams skipper in his one season with the club, playing 49 games before joining Burnley in 2012.

The centre-back made 39 appearances for the Clarets last season and played in every Premier League match.

Derby are also still eager to sign winger Tom Ince from Hull City and Aston Villa forward Andrea Weimann.

Ince, 23, spent time on loan with the Rams last season, while Weimann, who is the same age, struggled to break into the Villa side after Tim Sherwood took over as manager in mid-February.
