Skysports.com understands that Division One side Preston North End failed in a transfer deadline day bid to sign Wrexham ace Carlos Edwards.
Edwards's agent Mike Berry confirmed to skysports.com that Lilywhites chairman Derek Shaw and his Wrexham counterpart Mark Guterman met on Thursday to discuss a possible move for the 25-year-old.
However, both sides were unable to reach a deal before the 5pm deadline for the Trinidad & Tobago international.
"I can confirm that Preston made a move for Carlos on deadline day," Berry told skysports.com.
"However, the two clubs failed to come to an agreement.
"Carlos will now concentrate on keeping up his great form with Wrexham."
It is understood that Thursday's move for Edwards by the Deepdale club was their second for the highly-rated winger.
Edwards has attracted the interest of a host of clubs in The Premiership and Division One in recent months and it remains to be seen if the Caribbean star will be leaving The Racecourse Ground in the summer.
Meanwhile, Preston midfielder Brian O'Neil, who is already out for the season with a knee injury, has had a second operation on the damaged joint to repair a cartilage problem.
