Burnley manager Owen Coyle is weighing up whether to make another offer for Hamilton Academical full-back Brian Easton.
Hamilton have already turned down an offer from Burnley, with reports suggesting the figure was £300,000 plus appearance-based incentives.
Easton has admitted he would be keen to secure a move to Turf Moor, with Hamilton confirming talks are ongoing between the two clubs.
Coyle has acknowledged his interest in signing the 21-year-old and believes there could be scope for further negotiations.
"We made an offer the other day, which was rejected, and that's where we are at the moment," Coyle told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.
"I'm not saying there might not be further dialogue, but I thought we made a fair offer.
"I understand where Hamilton are coming from because they have invested in their youth policy, plus they are reluctant to lose the lad anyway.
"He's a young player with a big future, but everyone has their price.
"They're within their rights to think of their own valuation, but ultimately we have to reach an agreement and we've not been able to do that yet.
"We might look to make it more appealing."
