Darren Ferguson: Hopeful of Gayle staying

Gayle was borrowed by Peterborough from League Two side Dagenham last month with a view to a permanent move.

And Ferguson remains confident he will get his man despite the 22-year-old scoring his fourth goal in three games during Saturday's shock 2-1 win over Championship leaders Cardiff.

"At this rate, I'll struggle to keep hold of him," Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

"It would be a brave man to try and take him off us now. I'm sure he'll stay with us.

"He listens. He picks up things quickly, which is always a sign of a good player.

"He's going to be a really good player, the boy.

"I think him and Lee Tomlin are looking a partnership.

"The only slight criticism I'd have is they should have finished Cardiff off earlier."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
