Ipswich Town have rejected an offer from Coventry for striker Sam Parkin.
Town chief Jim Magilton rejected City's offer - despite the fact he did not even make the bench for Ipswich's opening day defeat to Crystal Palace.
"There was an initial enquiry from Coventry and we rejected an offer but there's been nothing more since," said Magilton.
"Sam is still part of my thinking and will be in the squad for Tuesday's game against Wolves.
"He was in the squad for the Palace game but didn't make my 16 because I felt his form in pre-season wasn't as good as the other players who were in the squad."
The Sky Blues are looking to bolster their strike-force with a big, strong striker and have also been linked with Sunderland's Kevin Kyle in recent weeks.
