BBC - Linfield continue Thompson talks
Linfield turned down a bid from Gretna for Thompson earlier this monthLinfield have turned down an offer from Queen's Park Rangers for Peter Thompson but talks are set to continue until the transfer deadline closes on Tuesday.
Members of the board met at Windsor Park for half an hour on Saturday.
Although the club did not reveal exact details of the bid, BBC Sport understands that an initial down payment of £50,000 was proposed.
A further £50,000 would be paid at the end of the season, plus other clauses, including £100,000 if QPR are promoted.
Loftus Road boss Ian Holloway watched Thompson in Tuesday night's 1-0 Co Antrim Shield win over Glentoran.
After watching the match, Holloway told BBC Sport that Thompson looked "a very good player".
"The lad was neat and tidy and worked his socks off.
"Now I've got to think about the state of my club and whether we've got the finance and what we can do," he said last week.
Barnsley manager Andy Ritchie also travelled to Belfast to watch Thompson in Tuesday's game.
Linfield boss David Jeffrey has insisted that he will not allow the player to go on trial with any club.
"If anybody wants him, they can make up their minds by watching him out on the pitch," said Jeffrey.
However, the Blues boss Jeffrey has said that the club will not stand in the way of any player who wants to move to full-time football.
Linfield turned down a bid from Scottish Division Two club Gretna for Thompson earlier this month.
Thompson's goalscoring exploits have attracted the attention of several clubs in Scotland and England, although Gretna have been the only club to make an official bid.
In November, the 21-year-old postman from east Belfast was called up by Northern Ireland manager Lawrie Sanchez, making his international debut in the friendly against Portugal.
