Hendrick impressed as his country progressed out of their group at this summer’s European Championships in France, with the hosts eventually knocking the Irish out in the round of sixteen.
He has spent his whole career so far with the Rams, racking up two hundred and fourteen appearances in all competitions, scoring twenty-six goals while he has been capped a total of twenty-five times for his country.
Derby have won just one of their five league games so far this season leaving them in eighteenth place, and can now be backed at 9/2 for promotion.
