Lee Tomlin: Not for sale

MacAnthony took to Twitter after the club rejected the request on Wednesday and said the club will reject any further advances.

According to reports Tomlin had previously spoken with manager Darren Ferguson and director of football Barry Fry in the build-up to submitting his request.

MacAnthony tweeted: "Obviously L Tomlin's agent has been speaking to the press as all classy agents like him do. He is not for sale & any transfer request is turned down.

"That's all I'll say on the Tomlin matter except to say I'm looking forward to seeing him helping our squad challenge for title this season."

A club statement confirming the news said: "Peterborough United Football Club can confirm that the club received a written transfer request from striker Lee Tomlin on Wednesday morning.

"The request has been rejected by the football club."

The 24-year-old rejected a new deal in the summer and has recently been linked with Scottish champions Celtic, newly-promoted Premier League side Crystal Palace and Championship clubs Huddersfield and Brighton.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
