Here are the latest snippets of news relating to players connected to Posh or departing from the ABAX Stadium club:

  • There have been a lot of rumours linking Posh to Bradford City’s Matt Kilgalon although this has been denied by Posh Chairman Darragh MacAnthony.
  • Despite MacAnthony denying any interest in AFC Wimbledon striker Lyle Taylor, who becomes a free agent at the end of June, Posh are apparently battling with Bristol Rovers to sign the forward! MacAnthony has confirmed “no discussions or offer have took place”.
  • Director of Football, Barry Fry, has confirmed that Derby County and Nottingham Forest are not one of the Championship clubs interested in midfielder Marcus Maddison.
  • Posh have turned down an approach from a “big League One” side for former captain Jack Baldwin. MacAnthony has described the bid as “paltry”!
  • Port Vale have been linked to numerous Posh strikers during the summer with MacAnthony eluding to the fact that a deal could be done with the League Two side. Who would that be for though? Junior Morias? Ricky Miller? Idris Kanu? Morias has already been ruled out though due to the fee involved so it could be a permanent switch for Miller or a loan move for Kanu.
  • Negotiations on a new contract for midfielder Gwion Edwards will take place during pre-season.
  • Negotiations on a new contract for another Welshman will also take place during pre-season. This time for left back Andrew Hughes.
  • Speaking of Andrew Hughes, MacAnthony has confirmed we have turned down three bids for him from Championship side Preston North End!
  • Posh have also turned down two bids for Danny Lloyd. One was from one of the four clubs relegated to League Two with the other one coming from a current League One side. Rumours suggest MK Dons and Gillingham are the sides concerned.
  • One bid was rejected for Edwards at the start of this week from an unnamed Championship club..
  • The Posh squad report back for pre-season training next Wednesday [ 27th June ].
