Nicky Ajose: Expected to leave London Road

Former Manchester United trainee Ajose is on the transfer list at Posh and is expected to leave the Sky Bet League One club during the current transfer window having found first-team opportunities hard to come by since moving to London Road in the summer of 2011.

Since signing for Peterborough Ajose has had loan spells at Scunthorpe, Chesterfield, Crawley and Bury.

The 21-year-old spent some time with St Johnstone last week and remains in the thoughts of Saints boss Tommy Wright despite returning to England.

"Nicky Ajose is back away down south now to his club. We are still thinking about him," said Wright.

Peterborough have bid for Saints striker Stevie May but have yet to meet the Perth club's valuation of the Scotland Under-21 international.

Amid rumours of a possible cash-plus-player deal, Wright insists Ajose's trial and Posh's interest in May are merely coincidence.

He said: "I can state categorically it had nothing to do with Stevie May and Peterborough."

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
