Willmott has a year left to run on his Luton contract

Forest Green Rovers have had a second bid for forward Robbie Willmott turned down by Luton Town.

Rovers approached the Hatters last week about a possible deal for the 21-year-old but their advances were rejected.

However, chairman Dale Vince told the Forest Green websiteexternal-link that Willmott "remains on his radar" and they tabled a second bid on Wednesday.

Luton replied with a statementexternal-link saying: "All bids received for contracted players have been instantly rejected."

And it went on to add: "The club can confirm that no contracted player will be leaving Kenilworth Road today [Wednesday]."

Willmott joined Luton for £50,000 from Cambridge United on an 18-month deal in January and went on to score six goals in 18 appearances last season.
