Cliftonville have rejected an offer from Glentoran for the Reds' star striker Joe Gormley.
The north Belfast club issued a statement on Thursday night saying the matter was discussed with Joe but he didn't want to leave Solitude.
The Glens were prepared to pay an Irish League record fee of £60,000.
They have offered a similar amount to Ballymena for their forward, Adam Lecky.
