Skysports.com understands two Championship clubs are battling it out to sign Burnley striker Chris Iwelumo.
Iwelumo came close to joining Preston last week, but the deal fell through after terms could not be agreed.
Burnley are believed to be willing to let Iwelumo move on having brought in Charlie Austin from Swindon.
Two mystery Championship clubs are now thought to have expressed an interest in Scottish international Iwelumo following the collapse of his switch to Deepdale.
Iwelumo's suitors face a race against time to tie up a deal for the big forward before the transfer window closes at 11pm on Monday.
