Tottenham are refusing to give up on prising Kyle Joseph away from Wigan Athletic.
The Sun says Spurs made a £150,000 offer for the Scotland Under-21 striker in the last window.
And Jose Mourinho's side also put a deal on the table to tempt him.
But Joseph said no — and also snubbed Sheffield United.
Spurs took midfielder Alfie Devine from Wigan and he has made progress.
So they hope it persuades Joseph there is a path to the first team.
The Latics need to come out of administration or face losing a handful of players this week.
They have seven on short-term deals and will not be able to keep them unless new owners are in.
