Wednesday's chase for Scunthorpe United's star man Billy Sharp looks set to come to an end with Championship rivals Norwich City entering in to talks with the hitman this week.
Talk of a move for the former Sheffield United man came around after former Irons boss Brian Laws took the reigns at Hillsborough and the rumours have failed to die down since.
But despite upping their offer, Wednesday now look set to lose out on one of their top close season targets after having their new bid rejected while Norwich City have been given the go-ahead to enter talks with the youngster.
'We've given Billy permission to talk to Norwich,' Scunthorpe chairman Steve Wharton told the Scunthorpe Telegraph.
'Norwich have had a £2m bid on the table for some time and want to make sure Billy wants to join them before pursuing their interest further.
'They have offered £2m but they know we are looking for add-ons to that which could take the price to near the £3m mark if they are promoted to the Premiership.'
And despite Owls boss Brian Laws revealing earlier this week that he had been given the go ahead from Owls chairman Dave Allen to pursue his interest further in Sharp and Southampton's Kenwyne Jones, it looks as though an increased offer from the club has been knocked back.
Wharton added: 'We have had increased bids from both Wolves and Sheffield Wednesday but neither of those come anywhere near what Norwich have offered.'
