League 2 Grimsby hope to sign Fowler
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."
