Nottingham Forest are set to make a fresh bid to land Birmingham midfielder Neil Danns.
Reds boss Colin Calderwood saw a £600,000 bid for the player rejected by the Championship side in January.
But with the 24-year-old former Colchester player (pictured) still on the fringes of the first-team squad at St Andrews, Forest hope to be able to land him on loan to bolster their League One promotion push.
Danns is set for showdown talks with Blues boss Steve Bruce tomorrow to discuss his future with the club.
And the Liverpool-born man's agent says there is an offer still on the table from the Reds.
'There was a £600,000 bid from Forest that was turned down in the January transfer window,' said his agent Derek Green. 'But they are still interested in taking him on loan.
'But there is a question over whether the player is willing to drop down a division to play, even to a club challenging for promotion.'
Danns has started only 11 matches for Birmingham since his £500,000 summer move from Colchester, as well as making 16 substitute appearances.
Forest have also been linked with Southampton's former Notts County striker Leon Best.
But while Calderwood admits he is a player he is interested in, he denied reports that he had already made a £350,000 bid for the Nottingham-born player.
'That is a lie, I can categorically tell you that,' he said. 'I wouldn't say he is not a player we are interested in.
'He is somebody I wanted to take to Northampton, he is a good player.'
Calderwood says Forest will carefully monitor the fitness of their squad and the players who are available, before deciding whether to make additions before the end of the emergency loan transfer window at the end of the month. 'We have until the end of March and we will monitor it,' he added.
'We just have to make sure we have enough for the final matches.'
