Peterborough United have had a bid accepted for free-scoring League One striker Kieffer Moore according to BBC Sport.

Posh have had a bid of around £250,000, plus add-ons, accepted by Moore’s club Ipswich Town, although it states it is not yet a done deal.

Moore (25) is available for transfer from Championship side Ipswich Town. He has spent the first half of this season on loan at League One side Rotherham United for whom he’s scored 13 goals this season. Only Posh striker Jack Marriott has scored more goals (17) in League One this season.

Peterborough director of football Barry Fry said: “We have had a bid for Kieffer Moore accepted by Ipswich. “But there are a lot of add-ons attached which our chairman might not fancy.”

“We believe Moore playing alongside Jack Marriott with Marcus Maddison supplying the crosses would be formidable in League One.”

The striker is also a target for other League One clubs, including Rotherham. Ipswich paid Forest Green £20,000 for the powerful striker in January, 2017. He’s never started a game for the Tractor Boys, but he’s believed to have an initial price tag of £250,000.

Millers boss Paul Warne has made clear his intentions of trying to sign the striker on a permanent deal and said after Monday’s draw with Blackburn that the club had submitted an offer.

“I know there are three other clubs in for him in our league,” Warne revealed. “It’s not just us who know about him. He is scoring all the goals, so everyone knows him.”

 “We have got competition. Kieffer wants to come back. I texted him on Sunday and sent him his five best things he has done at the club.

“I am well aware of what an effect he had at the club, so if we can get him back we will.”
