SWANSEA City look ready to test Wrexham's resolve to keep Trinidad & Tobago World Cup hero Dennis Lawrence.
The League One side are set to make a bid for the 6ft 7in centre-back and with 32-year-old Lawrence now in the final season of his Dragons contract Wrexham, who have just come out of administration, may find the offer difficult to refuse.
It is understood that Lawrence, who has been a cult hero at the Racecourse since his arrival from Defence Force in February 2001, would be interested in the prospect of moving up a division to further his career in what might be his last chance to
play on a bigger stage.
Having made over 200 appearances for Wrexham, Lawrence entered the global spotlight this summer after his goal against Bahrain earned his homeland their first ever appearance in the World Cup.
Last night Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said: "Dennis was just one of a number of players we were
told were available to us. "But, like a lot of these players, they are under contract.
"It is a complete fabrication to say we have made a bid for him."
However the Post understands that Swans boss Kenny Jackett is a big fan of the defender, and a bid may soon be on its way.
