Bolton boss Gary Megson has conceded defeat in his pursuit of West Brom midfielder James Morrison.
The Trotters are keen to bolster their midfield options during the January transfer window and had earmarked the Scot as a potential new recruit.
However, a £3million approach was spurned by the Baggies and Megson admits he will now turn his attentions elsewhere.
"We did make that offer and it was turned down flat so we have moved on from that," he said.
"We are in the market to try and bolster the midfield and that was turned down so we move on.
"We had a valuation which obviously didn't meet West Brom's and there are other players out there.
"We need to bring in a midfield player, so there is more than one available."
Megson has been linked with a move for Sunderland's Kieran Richardson, but the Trotters chief refused to comment on the speculation.
"We can't keep going through different players at different football clubs," he said.
"But, there are a lot of midfield players we are interested in."
