Crystal Palace are pondering a revised bid for Blackburn Rovers midfielder Adam Wharton.
Palace saw an offer around £18.5m rejected on Thursday and Rovers asked to keep Wharton on loan.
Rovers manager Jon Dahl Tomasson said: ‘There’s been an offer and the club has said no, which I like.’
The 19-year-old, who has been at the club since the age of six, signed a deal in December which will keep him at Blackburn until the end of the 2027-28 season.
Having made his senior debut back in August 2022, Wharton has gone on to make 51 senior appearances for the club, featuring in all but two of their Championship matches this season, returning two goals.
