Morecambe have made a bid of £5,000 for Chester midfielder Michael Twiss.
Twiss began his career as a trainee at Manchester United
The former Port Vale and Sheffield United player has fallen out of favour at the Deva Stadium and has not started a game since October.
Shrimpers boss Jim Harvey is a long time admirer of the 26-year-old and is keen to bolster his squad as Morecambe push for a play-off place.
Twiss is out of contract in the summer and so would cost only a small part of his market value.
