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.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
