Wigan Athletic face competition in their pursuit of Brentford midfielder Adam Forshaw.
The Latics have seen two bids rejected for the Bees star, who was absent from the club's training base today while he mulls over his future.
Mark Warburton has warned Forshaw will not be sold on the cheap, with two years still to run on his deal at Griffin Park.
And the Brentford boss has revealed other clubs have now joined the race for the 22-year-old.
He said: “There’s interest from other clubs. When a bid comes in other clubs realise there might be a possibility.
“But Adam’s got two years on his contract to run. We’re not going to bend over and let an asset go because we’ve got an unsettled player.
“If he leaves we wish him well because he’s a likeable guy but it will be on our terms. The next 24 hours things will start to develop.”
Warburton admits the former Everton youngster has been unsettled by the speculation over his future and will be kept away from their Jersey Road headquarters until his future is decided.
“If a house is worth £1million don’t bid £300,000 for it," said the Bees chief of Wigan's two offers, which were quickly knocked back.
“If you’re 22 or 23 and get a bid from another club offering improved wages or whatever it's unsettling. People who say it isn’t are not living in the real world.
“At this level here you need to focus on the game and if you’re mind is not on it it’s best to make sure it doesn’t impact in a negative way.
“If we have the player here committed then all well and good, but if not then it’s important to stay away because our focus is to look after Brentford Football Club."
