James Constable: Oxford United striker has been the subject of a second bid from Bristol Rovers
Oxford United chairman Kelvin Thomas has confirmed he is considering a second offer from League Two rivals Bristol Rovers for striker James Constable.
Rovers saw an initial bid for Constable rejected last week, but manager Mark McGhee has returned with an improved offer for the 27-year-old.
Thomas is now taking his time before making a decision on whether to let Constable discuss a move to the Memorial Stadium.
"We have received a second bid from Bristol Rovers, which will be considered over the weekend," said Thomas in the Oxford Mail.
Constable has spent the past four seasons with Oxford and was the club's top scorer with 11 goals in 40 League Two appearances in 2011/12.
He rejected a move to League Two champions Swindon Town during the January transfer window and has two years left on his contract at the Kassam Stadium.
