Lee Tomlin: Rated highly at Peterborough

Tomlin's future has been the subject of much speculation since Posh were relegated from the Championship last season.

Recent reports stated that the 24-year-old's fans' favourite, and according to Peterborough boss Ferguson a personal favourite of chairman Darragh MacAnthony, was about to follow Dwight Gayle out of London Road.

Striker Gayle left Posh this summer for Premier League newcomers Crystal Palace in a deal reported to be potentially worth in the region of £8.5million with add-ons.

Tomlin is expected to play a key role as Ferguson masterminds promotion from League One this season and an immediate return to the second tier.

Speaking after Posh's 4-2 win at Notts County on Saturday Ferguson insists the former Rushden & Diamonds man is not going anywhere.

"There's been speculation over Lee Tomlin, " said Ferguson. "Lee Tomlin is the chairman's favourite player, he ain't going nowhere unless someone wants to give us £12million. That's up to them but that's the sort of cost we'll be asking for.

"The chairman loves him, I love him as a player, he's maturing as a player and there's always going to be speculation. "That's one thing we've always had and we've dealt with it fine so I don't see anyone going anywhere."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
