West Brom have rebuffed Derby County's approach for Republic of Ireland international James McClean.

According the Sky Sports, the Rams attempted to secure the Derry native's services on loan for the remainder of the season.

McClean did not play in the 3-2 FA Cup win over Liverpool on Saturday but has played regularly since Alan Pardew took over the Hawthorns.

A Baggies fan trolled McClean over the weekend on Twitter saying he would drive the player to a Championship club.

He responded: "No, you are grand, I have a Range Rover, a BMW i8 and a Mercedes, can drive myself."

Derby County are currently seeking promotion to the Premier League and are well-placed in second in the Championship in an automatic promotion slot.
