West Brom have rejected a third bid from West Ham for star midfielder Graham Dorrans.
As revealed by skysports.com earlier on Thursday, West Ham launched an improved bid for Dorrans after seeing two previous offers rejected by West Brom.
Premier League new boys West Brom have rejected the latest offer, thought to be in the region of £5million, and Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace insists Dorrans is not for sale.
Peace has told West Ham they are wasting their time in their pursuit of the Scot as they have no plans to sell Dorrans.
"Details of a third bid from West Ham for Graham Dorrans have been leaked to the media," Peace told the club's official website.
"This offer is completely unwelcome and, like West Ham's previous two bids, it has been rejected out of hand.
"I have personally told West Ham they are wasting their time.
"Graham is not for sale - to West Ham or any other club.
"I cannot make myself any clearer on this subject.
"As far as we are concerned, that is the end of the matter."
Peace added: "As ever, Graham is being a consummate professional and getting on with his pre-season training.
"We are now looking forward to seeing him play an integral part for the club in the Barclays Premier League next season."
