Skysports.com can reveal that Leicester City are the club to have had a bid for Nicky Maynard knocked back.
Bristol City revealed on Monday that they had snubbed an approach from one of their Championship rivals for their highly-rated striker.
Robins chairman Colin Sexstone announced that the club have no intention of parting with a player who boasts an impressive strike rate in the Football League ranks.
It is hoped that taking such a stance will deter any further bids for the talented 24-year-old.
Leicester, though, are in the process of a summer rebuilding programme and boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has money to spend.
The Foxes are not the only club tracking Maynard, though, with Nottingham Forest and West Ham also reported to be interested.
Championship newcomers Southampton are also said to be keen on adding the proven frontman to their ranks ahead of their return to the second tier.
