Blackpool have rejected Derby County's undisclosed offer for defender Shaun Barker.
Skysports.com revealed earlier in the week that the Rams had made a move to sign the full-back from their Championship rivals.
However, it is now understood that the Seasiders have rejected Derby's opening gambit for the 26-year-old.
Barker has also been linked with Derby's local rivals Nottingham Forest after an impressive campaign at Bloomfield Road.
He was named the club's Player of the Year, but has only one year remaining on his contract with Blackpool.
