Scunthorpe have had a bid of £100,000 accepted by Hull City for their winger Kevin Ellison - but the player has rejected the move.
Ellison, 27, has only started 26 league games for Hull since joining in January 2005 but has chosen to remain with The Tigers to fight for his place.
"He has decided he wants to stay," said a spokesman for City.
"It wasn't a case of him wanting to leave but Scunthorpe came in and he decided a move wasn't for him."
