Reported Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur target Christian Eriksen is still in contact with 'certain clubs', according to the Ajax star's agent.
The Denmark attacker, whose contract expires next summer, has been linked with a Â£15million move to several of Europe's biggest clubs, including Borussia Dortmund and AC Milan.
And Eriksen's representative, Martin Schoots, claims there is ongoing dialogue with several parties who could be interested in signing the 21-year-old.
"We are still keeping in touch with certain clubs." Schoots told Sporten.dk.
"That will always be the case with a player like Christian. At this point, it is hard to tell if it will end up with a transfer."
But Eriksen will apparently not walk out on Ajax for free in 2014 and so will be happy to sign a new contract with the Dutch giants if he does not move before then.
"He wants Ajax to get money for him and therefore he will extend his contract, in case he does not succeed in finding a new club," said Schoots.
Meanwhile, Ajax have signed 16-year-old Markus Bay from Brondby.
The 30-year-old, who joined the Shakers in 2006, has had his contract terminated by mutual consent and penned a two-year deal with the Welsh club where he had a loan spell last season.
Bishop leaves Gigg Lane having scored 83 goals in 264 appearances, despite serious injury problems, and goes with the club's best wishes.
A statement read: "Andy leaves with the club's blessing, and appreciation for the effort and commitment that he has shown the Shakers over the last seven seasons."
Bishop added: "Now my move to Wrexham has been completed, I'd like to thank the manager (Kevin Blackwell), his coaching staff and especially physio Tom Walsh for all their help and support over the years.
"There have been plenty of ups and downs during my time at Bury, but I've never regretted one minute of my time here.
"I've enjoyed every second of the last seven years and will remember everything about the place with great fondness.
"After all the disappointment of last season, I am really pleased that the club has a future and is moving forward at what seems to be a very fast rate of knots.
"I wish everyone all the very best wishes for the future, and a successful season for the Shakers."
Shah, who has worked as a consultant for the Cabinet Office and HSBC, joins the Robins board which is led by chairman Jed McCrory with a view to putting the club on a stable financial footing.
"I have utter delight at the opportunity to serve the club," she said. "The vision and strategy that Jed has for the club is compelling and one that will result in Swindon Town flourishing.
"Already, it is reaching a stable financial footing and with the further changes planned, I am confident that the board will move the club rapidly to a position where it will be thriving - both on and off the pitch."
McCrory added: "I am very pleased that a person of Sangita's gravitas and business acumen has agreed to join us in our push to develop a community club here at Swindon Town.
"I have worked with Sangita over the past five or six years on numerous different sector projects and I have no doubt that she will bring expertise that will help us continue the work we have started."
