West Brom have rejected a second transfer request from wantaway midfielder George Thorne.
The 21-year-old, who is a target for Derby County, has submitted a second written document despite having a similar formal request rejected by Albion earlier this month.
Thorne’s fresh move came just hours after the Baggies turned down a similar transfer request from defender Craig Dawson, who is wanted by Burnley.
Derby have already had a £950,000 opening offer and a second bid, believed to be worth up to £1.5m, rejected by Albion, who have insisted they will not sell Thorne.
They have also told Burnley that Dawson, aged 24, is not for sale.
But neither the Rams nor the Clarets are expected to give up easily.
