Portsmouth, Lincoln, Shrewsbury and Blackpool are trying to sign Peterborough midfielder Anthony Grant, according to The News.

Director of Peterborough, Barry Fry told the Peterborough Telegraph that Portsmouth are one of several clubs are eyeing up a move for the 31-year-old.

League One side’s Blackpool, Shrewsbury and League Two side Lincoln also reportedly interested in the midfielder after being transfer listed by Peterborough.

Barry Fry said: “Numerous clubs have shown an interest in him including Lincoln, Shrewsbury. Portsmouth and Blackpool. Anthony has been given permission to speak to a club without a fee yet being agreed.”

Anthony Grant appeared 48 times for the Posh last season, helping them to a ninth-place finish in League One but he isn’t needed this year as boss Steve Evans has transfer listed him.

Grant has also played for a host of clubs Southend United, Stevenage, Crewe and Port Vale during his career and this experience could be vital for one of the interested clubs.

But he has a year left on his contract at Peterborough United, after moving to London Road for a large fee in January 2017 from Port Vale, so he will be costly for the club that signs him.

Grant isn’t the only Posh player who may be leaving the club with Barry Fry saying this about Ricky Miller “As soon as his court case is over he is expected to leave. A fee has been agreed with a League Two club.”

Also, he said this about Idris Kanu “A season-long loan at a League Two club has been agreed, but waiting for the manager to return from holiday to rubber stamp it.”

Experienced defender Steven Taylor might be on his way as Fry said “An Australian club is interested as is a League Two club. Fee might be waived depending on where he goes.”
