Isa transfer to one provider, use allowance with another?

Any ideas please. Can I transfer a matured one year cash isa ( now an instant access cash isa with a low rate) to a new cash isa with same provider, to get a better interest rate AND open a new cash isa with another provider to fund with annual £20k allowance? Reason is to avoid going over the £85k  fcsc protection . My concern is this may constitute opening 2 cash isas in one year.
