Peterborough United have made an offer worth £500K for Bradford City’s Charlie Wyke according to a report from the Telegraph and Argus.
Wyke had been one of Bradford’s top players last season with the 25-year-old striker scoring 16 goals in 43 appearances last season. But there are fears that they could lose him this summer. While Bradford have been looking to get him to sign a new contract, his current deal is set to expire next summer and they don’t want to lose him on a free transfer. This means they are open to selling him during the transfer window.
This has caused interest from other teams with clubs such as Bolton Wanderers being reportedly in to sign him. Peterborough United were also mentioned in those initial reports but their owner Darragh MacAnthony denied it on Twitter. But it appears that the main man in charge was playing coy as this report suggests they have made an offer to try and sign Wyke.
This report has said that Peterborough have made an offer worth £500K for Wyke. While this may seem like quite a bit for a Sky Bet League One side, the Posh will most likely rake in a lot of money from their inevitable sale of star striker Jack Marriott and it would be wise to use that money to get a worthy replacement. This would be a profit for Bradford as they spent £250K on him initially but they may look to get more money out of Peterborough before selling Wyke.
