Posh this summer tried to sign Wells, whose 26 goals last season helped fire the Bantams to the Capital One Cup final and promotion to League One.

During a Q&A session set up by MacAnthony on Twitter on Monday afternoon he stated that he offered the Yorkshire club more than the £1.1million paid to Crawley for Tyrone Barnett 18 months ago but it was turned down.

"We made a club record bid but in fairness to Bradford they don't need the money, so good for them," MacAnthony tweeted.
