Leeds United have had a third bid rejected by Tranmere for youngster Steve Davies.
The 19-year-old has been tipped to be the next addition to Dennis Wise's rejuvenated squad, but Rovers have completed a triple rejection of approaches from The Whites.
The winger had been in contract negotiations with Ronnie Moore's side, but Leeds moved for Davies after the talks stalled.
Moore is now leaving the decision in regards to Davies' future up to the player and his agent, but says his side have "less power than they used to" in their attempts to sway players' decisions.
He told the club's official website: "Clubs have much less power than they used to, even with young players, and there is only so much we can do.
"It's not a matter of the club wanting or needing to sell, quite often the decision is based on what the player wants to do."
Meanwhile, Leeds assistant manager Gus Poyet remains hopeful that his side can tie up a number of deals before the transfer window shuts on 31st August.
"We are looking and we are hoping," Poyet told the club's official website.
"It is an important few days and we will see how things go. We are hopeful."
