Stevie May: Peterborough have already failed with three bids for the striker

The Posh have already seen three bids for the Scotland U21 international knocked back.

They are refusing to concede defeat in their efforts to bolster their attacking ranks, though, and have re-opened transfer talks.

St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright accepts every player has his price and an agreement could be reached before the window closes, but has warned Peterborough that they will have to dig a little deeper if they are to secure the signature of a top target.

He said in The Courier: "There has been further communication with Peterborough but no new formal bid. It is not dead in the water and further discussions may take place between the two clubs.

"Stevie is being kept informed every step of the way of their interest, as he has been from the start. There has been no cloak and dagger stuff.

"Three offers have been made but none came close to our valuation of a player we have brought through the youth system and farmed out on loan to progress his career. He is a player I want to hold on to so it would take a very serious offer from any club to lure him away.

"Stevie knows how highly I regard him and that is reflected in the fact he has featured in all five matches this season.

"I wouldn't want to lose him to any club but the chairman does have a valuation on Stevie.

"But right now I have told him he is only a few games into a new season in the top division in Scotland and he just has to keep progressing."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
