West Bromwich Albion can expect to receive another bid from Watford after they rejected a #1.4 million offer for defender Paul Robinson.
The former England Under-21 left-back is the latest Albion player to be coveted by Premiership clubs.
Albion spurned a #3 million bid for Curtis Davies and Wigan's #1.75 million bid for Zoltan Gera was also rebuffed.
However, Watford are unlikely to accept Albion's refusal and are contemplating an increased bid for the 27-year-old who left the Hornets for The Hawthorns in October 2003.
Robinson, who was being touted as a potential England international by manager Bryan Robson, has made in excess of 100 first-team appearances for Albion. But he is revered at Vicarage Road and a return to the Premiership would appeal to Robinson.
However, Robson, who has claimed that every player has his price, is remaining defiant in the face of growing speculation over his saleable assets
"He's a big part of the team and a player I need to keep in the squad for next season if we're going to challenge for promotion" said Robson.
Meanwhile, Cardiff City chairman Sam Hammam has revealed attempts to sign Jason Koumas are progressing.
The #1.5 million-rated Albion midfielder impressed while completing a season-long loan deal with the Bluebirds last term and has publicly stated he wants to return to Ninian Park as long as Dave Jones remains manager. Jones recently signed a fresh contract with Cardiff.
"Things are happening on the Koumas front, but I'm not saying any more until we are ready," said Hammam. "He is one of our top priorities of the summer, I promise you that."
