Plymouth Argyle midfielder David Norris has had a transfer request turned down by the Devon club.
Norris is wanted by his former boss Ian Holloway at Leicester
Norris' future at Argyle has been in doubt after he was absent from a club event in the build-up to Saturday's FA Cup tie at Portsmouth.
Neither Norris or Argyle manager Paul Sturrock were at a news conference held on board HMS Albion on Monday.
It is believed the pair held talks after Ipswich Town made a second offer for the 26-year-old midfielder.
Ipswich have already had a £1.5m bid turned down and Leicester boss Ian Holloway has confirmed their interest.
"I'm in the market for good players and sometimes a manager wants to bring in people they know," the former Pilgrims manager told BBC Radio Leicester.
"It depends on what Plymouth want to do with him."
In a statement on Tuesday Argyle said :
"Argyle can confirm that they have received a written request for a transfer from midfielder David Norris. After due consideration, the request has been refused by the club."
