Club reluctant to sell star striker
Sky Sports sources understand that Fleetwood have rejected £1million bids from Southampton and Leicester for striker Jamie Vardy.
The 25-year-old has been in fine form for the high-flying Conference outfit this season, hitting 21 goals in just 24 appearances, and that has attracted the interest of a number of clubs in the Football League.
Fleetwood are understandably reluctant to sell their star striker as they chase promotion and have already rejected a bid from Blackpool earlier this month.
That offer was believed to have been in the region of £750,000, with Championship duo Leicester and Southampton now having £1million bids rebuffed.
It remains to be seen whether the two clubs will return with a higher offer, with Fleetwood chairman Andy Pilley admitting earlier in the month that he may consider selling Vardy if they could have him back on-loan until the end of the season.
The likes of Fulham, Wolves, West Ham, Reading and Rangers have all also been linked with the former FC Halifax hitman.
