Blackpool are understood to have returned with an improved offer for Morecambe striker Jack Redshaw.
The Shrimps turned down the Seasiders’ initial offer, reportedly £150,000, but the League 1 side are believed to have come back in for the highly-rated front man on Wednesday.
Morecambe were keeping quiet on the new developments as Blackpool appeared closer than ever to getting their man.
Redshaw, who has one year remaining on his current deal, quickly established himself as the club’s prize asset after his move from Altrincham in January 2012.
He rejected a move to Peterborough in August 2014 and went on to score 12 goals for the Shrimps last season.
