JIM Magilton has denied a deal has been done for Alan Lee but admits he will consider an offer for the striker if Burnley make their move.

Town have had an enquiry from their Championship rivals for the striker who didn't start but went on as second half substitute.

Magilton said: “We have not had a bid for Alan Lee from Burnley, but I'm sure the phone will ring about him on Monday or Tuesday and if it does then we will have to consider it.

“I will consider offers for any of my players and if it is one I can't turn down then I won't.”

Burnley are understood to be willing to pay £900,000 for Lee after selling Andy Gray to Charlton for £1.5m

Magilton explained that new signing Alan Quinn was not used against Blackpool as the paperwork was not completed until late Friday night.

Quinn has moved from Sheffield United in a £400,000 transfer after initially joining on loan.

Magilton said: “Alan was eligible to play but decided it was too late to throw him straight in.

“I know him very well and he is the right sort of character. He wants to revive his career and we will give him the chance to do that.”

Magilton confirmed that Quinn's arrival has not ended his interest in David Norris from Plymouth.

He said: “David Norris is still very much in my thoughts. We have made our offer which we feel is very good.”
