The Cottagers are understood to have had a second offer for the youngster rebuffed, but Meulensteen said that potential transfers are in CEO Alistair Mackintosh's hands and he is focused on training.
"We've put a bid in but it's up to Alistair Macintosh," the Dutchman told reporters. "[Reports on potential targets] are quite accurate, but Mackintosh is dealing with transfers. I'm focused on training the players."
Meulensteen also confirmed that there was interest from both Watford and Ligue 1 side Evian TG for midfielder Derek Boateng.
