Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has dropped a hint that star man Marcus Maddison is set to remain at the club this summer.
Chairman Darragh MacAnthony has hinted that Peterborough United playmaker Marcus Maddison is set to remain at the club.
MacAnthony replied to a fan’s tweet (see below) on Saturday evening, giving a response that only hints at a positive outcome regarding Maddison’s future at London Road.
Maddison endured a difficult start to the season with Posh. He was low on match fitness in the early stages with much of his summer being disrupted by seemingly constant interest. The playmaker was placed on the transfer list at the end of the 2017/18 season after the club failed to win promotion, but he ended up remaining with the club.
Upon returning to full fitness, Maddison continued to impress. He has returned to his lethal best in recent months since the arrival of Darren Ferguson – the man who bought him from Gateshead in the summer of 2014. Since Ferguson’s return, Maddison has added six goals and five assists to his tally, taking him to nine goals and 21 assists in all competitions.
Maddison’s strong relationship with Ferguson could play a massive part in him remaining at Peterborough United. That combined with the birth of his first born child in the New Year could play big roles in his decision as to where he will be playing his football next season.
The 25-year-old possesses talent that puts him up there with the best in League One and a Championship move would certainly be warranted, especially given his stunning assists record in recent seasons. However, Ferguson, MacAnthony and Posh fans will be hoping he opts to remain with the club.
