West Ham are said to have had a bid for Stockport goalkeeper Owain Fon-Williams turned down.
22-year-old Fon-Williams, who is widely is regarded as League One County's most prized asset is said to have been the subject of a £150,000 bid from the Hammers - an offer that is said to have been instantly rejected.
The talented Welsh under-21 international has been tracked by a number of Premier League clubs in recent months, including Everton and Sunderland. He has been at Edgeley Park for just a year following a free transfer from former club Crewe, whom he left having failed to break into the first team.
Fon-Williams, who stands at 6'4" joined The Alex as a trainee in 2003 before a broken leg in 2004 halted his progress. After completing his move to Stockport in July 2008 following the completion of his contract at Gresty Road he was made first choice keeper, but soon lost his place after some indifferent form.
Having returned to the number one spot in November the keeper went on to play every game for County before a problematic shoulder forced an operation in March that kept him of of action for the rest of the season. Prior to the setback Fon-Williams had earned his first call-up to the full Welsh squad.
