ROY HODG­SON is lin­ing up a sur­prise £3mil­lion bid for Derby de­fender John Bray­ford in Jan­uary.

The West Brom boss has made three trips to watch Bray­ford al­ready this sea­son and is con­sid­er­ing a Jan­uary swoop.

The 23-year-old is one of the most highly-rated de­fend­ers out­side the Premier League and only signed a long-term con­tract in Au­gust.

But Hodg­son is des­per­ate to re­cruit a suc­ces­sor to Steven Reid and is weigh­ing up an of­fer in the New Year.
