BRISTOL CITY have made an increased bid for Falkirk striker Lee Miller and have been told they will have a final decision on Wednesday.
The Scotland Under-21 star has been in talks with last season's LDV Vans Trophy winners on Tuesday and is expected to return home to discuss the matter with Falkirk chairman Campbell Christie.
Chief executive for the West Country side, Colin Sextone, told the club's official website: "Having spoken to Lee I am optimistic he will be joining us, but the deal is not done yet.
"We have made a fresh bid, which has altered the dates for payment as much as anything, to make it more attractive to Falkirk.
"Lee seemed very happy with his visit to Ashton Gate and his agent also appears keen for him to sign here.
"But the Falkirk chairman wants to speak to Lee personally to make sure he wants to come before finally giving us a decision on our offer."
Although City have yet to reveal the exact amount of the bid, the Scottish outfit have already confirmed rejected bids of £200,000 from a Nationwide club, possibly Wigan Athletic, and a £300,000 bid from Aberdeen so any offer will have to top the two.
