George Boyd: Stays at Peterborough

MacAnthony branded Boyd's failed move "ridiculous" after the club issued a statement confirming the deal was off.

Winger Boyd, 27, will now remain at Peterborough, where his contract is due to expire at the end of this season.

MacAnthony told Sky Sports News: "George agreed terms with Forest, he went there for a medical at 10.30 this morning and he's been there all day.

"I got a phone call off him in bits. He said that he passed the medical then they made him do an eye test.

"He's played 300 games and scored from the halfway line the other month but Forest say he has an eyesight problem.

"The whole thing stinks. Alex McLeish wanted to sign him. I'm devastated for George. It's the most ridiculous thing that's happened to me. He will be back at Peterborough."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
