Peterborough United ‘pulled out’ of deal for new signing, reveals key figure

Peterborough United chairman and co-owner Darragh MacAnthony has revealed on Twitter he “pulled” a transfer deal for an unnamed player.

Peterborough United have made some impressive acquisitions so far this summer as Darren Ferguson prepares his side for Championship football.

Fan favourite Jack Marriott and former Ipswich Town shot-stopper David Cornell have both joined on free transfers. Former loan man Josh Knight has also completed a return to London Road, while highly-rated midfielder Jorge Grant has also linked up with Posh.

Now, it has been revealed that another player could have been set to join, before chairman and co-owner Darragh MacAnthony stepped in.

The Championship new boys have been linked with a host of players ahead of next season.

Rangers’ George Edmundson, St. Mirren star Jamie McGrath, Ipswich Town prodigy Flynn Downes and Gillingham defender Jack Tucker are all claimed to have been on Posh’s radar.
