Wolverhampton Wanderers have seen their latest bid for Cardiff City striker Joe Mason turned down, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.
Wolves boss Kenny Jackett is desperate to bring in a new striker before the close of the transfer window, and he is a long-term admirer of Mason.
Jackett saw a bid for Mason rejected at the start of the summer, with Wolves offering £1.5million for the 24-year-old – as revealed by HITC Sport.
Mason looked to be on his way out of Cardiff last season after finding himself out of favour at the Cardiff City Stadium, having spent three spells out on loan at Bolton Wanderers during the last 18 months.
Cardiff are reluctant to lose Mason, with the striker scoring three goals so far this season, and are set to resist any further offers for the player before the summer deadline passes.
