The Blues have had bids rejected for the two players, who played for Ipswich boss Paul Hurst at both Shrewsbury and Grimsby, with the Shropshire side understood to value them each at more than £1million.

Caldwell revealed he has not had a response since turning the offers down but insisted Ipswich will need to meet the asking price if they are to bring the players to Suffolk.

“We looked at the valuations quite closely the chairman and I and we discussed it even last season with Paul (Hurst) and I think we all knew what parameters we were looking at if we had to sell the players,” he told BBC Radio Shropshire.

“However, what I would say is that we don’t need to sell the players, we don’t need cash like a lot of football clubs, we don’t want to sell the players and this is totally out of our control.

“The players have obviously got wind of everything through their agents etc and maybe perhaps the other club, shall I say, which I’m sure has been going on behind everybody’s back.

“And they’ve now handed in transfer requests, obviously in an effort to force us to sell. But, one, we don’t to sell, two, we don’t need the money and the third thing is they’ve not met the valuation and we’re not going to sell them on the cheap.

“I’m standing strong here that the valuation that we all feel is the right valuation for the players will be the valuation we’ll accept.

“We got the bid yesterday, I went back to them with the valuation which I felt was more appropriate to the levels than they’ve put in and haven’t had any feedback to that as yet.”
