The Hatters have offered £25,000 to take the Northern Ireland international to Edgeley Park but their bid has been snubbed by their Second Division counterparts.
Feeney is out of contract at the end of the season but, as he is 23, would still command a transfer fee.
The forward has already expressed his desire to join former Irish manager Sammy McIlroy at Stockport despite being offered a new deal by The Cherries.
But his dream is currently on hold after Bournemouth chairman Peter Phillips decided to turn down Stockport's offer for the ex-Leeds United youngster.
"Stockport have come back to us since the end of the season and made basically the same offer as they made several weeks ago which is an offer in the order of £25,000," Phillips told the Daily Echo.
"We told them we weren't interested. I don't know how this will work out. There's no question that Stockport are a wealthier club than us now.
"They've got a new chairman who's got money in his pocket. They could pay Warren more than we are able to pay him and it gives him a difficult choice.
"If he chooses to go there then good luck to him and it will end up at a transfer tribunal but I'm still hoping that he might decide to stay."
