League Two side Grimsby Town hope to lure former England striker Robbie Fowler to Blundell Park.
Fowler's friendship with Grimsby manager Mike Newell has led to talk of a possible deal.
Fenty told the club's official website: "A couple of weeks ago the manager had some discussions with Robbie and then asked me if we could potentially take it forward for Robbie to come in in a playing/coaching capacity.
"He is under contract with Blackburn until December and there is a real chance that he will get an extension there.
"But if that doesn't happen there is a glimmer of a chance that he might come to Grimsby.
"In truth we were trying to avoid this becoming a public issue but I think I needed to clarify the situation."
