West Brom have confirmed they have turned down an increased offer from West Ham for midfielder Graham Dorrans.
The midlands club, promoted back to the Barclays Premier League for the 2010/2011 season, already turned down one bid from the Hammers in April.
West Brom sporting and technical director Dan Ashworth said: "As I have stressed several times since we achieved promotion, our aim is to retain our core players and try to strengthen our squad around them. I want to make it clear again that Graham Dorrans is not for sale."
He added: "Graham signed a new contract until June 2014 in January and he remains a key member of our squad."
