Luton Town winger Carlos Edwards claims Watford have made a bid for his signature.
The 27-year-old impressed during Trinidad & Tobago's World Cup debut earlier in the summer and has also caught the eye of Birmingham City.
Blues boss Steve Bruce has yet to firm up his interest, but his Watford counterpart Adrian Boothroyd has been in touch.
Edwards confirmed the offer from The Hatters' local rivals, but revealed he is happy to leave the matter in the hands of Luton boss Mike Newell.
"They (Watford) did put in a bid, I can't say the amount," Edwards told Sky Sports News.
"The manager did say they are interested and put a bid on the table, but he didn't clarify exactly what is the sum.
"I'm leaving it up to him. They are showing an interest, but I've not spoken to Watford.
"They are speaking to the club and I'm waiting to see what my manager does for me.
"After the Sweden game he said Birmingham were interested. He hasn't heard anything since then.
"I'm leaving it up to the manager and whoever is involved at the club to try to see what is best for me."
The exciting winger joined Luton from Wrexham last summer and was a key figure as Newell's side comfortably retained their Championship status.
