Leeds were said to be prepared to meet Derby’s £11m valuation, and it had been suggested that a deal was close to going through.
However, Vydra is believed to be stalling on a move to Marcelo Bielsa’s team as he feels that offers from the Premier League could arrive.
The forward has scored 65 times in 187 Championship appearances during his career, and netted 21 times in 40 league games for Derby last term.
Derby are said to be close to securing a deal for Ipswich Town attacker Martyn Waghorn, however, and a number of Leeds fans feel that the move would see Vydra leave.
A lot would still have to happen for Vydra – rated at £7.2m by Transfermarket – to make the move to Elland Road ahead of the new season, but there are some Leeds supporters feeling pretty good about the latest developments.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Derby to get Marriott, Leeds to get Vydra. Surely Derby will sort some kind of deal to get Vydra out the door now #LUFC

With Waghorn Derby bound surely the Vydra saga will be sorted one way or another #LUFC

If Derby are serious about Waghorn at 8 million, Vydra will leave. Still strongly believe he will be our player #lufc
