Derby are close to wrapping up a deal to keep on-loan striker Luke Moore at Pride Park until the end of the season.
The 24-year-old`s spell from West Brom runs out after the derby match against Nottingham Forest on December 29.
Rams chief executive Tom Glick told BBC Radio Derby: "I think Nigel Clough has been clear that we are interested in extending the loan.
"We would hope that we will soon report that we have done that."
Moore originally joined the Rams on a one-month loan deal in September but that has already been extended twice.
Glick added: "Luke has been terrific for us, he has that extra bit of quality and has scored three great goals."
