Peterborough United have been linked with a move for Luton Town top scorer Mark Cullen.
Cullen has been told by Hatters boss John Still - a former Posh boss - that he won’t play for the club again after handing in a transfer request.
Still told the Luton News: “Mark said to me that he would like to look to move to a club in a higher division. I can say no, you’re not going, stay here and get on with it, but I probably wouldn’t play him as his heart’s not in it.
“Everyone we have here, good or bad, has to be 100 per cent us. Mark’s a great lad, this isn’t a criticism, it’s just how it is.
“On Monday (February 23), the club will decide if we accept offers that are made for him. It may be they don’t, he may have to stay here, but he wouldn’t play.”
Cullen (22) has scored 12 goals in 33 appearances for the League Two club this season. He started his career at Hull and has also played for Bradford City, Bury and Stockport.
The potential move could be scuppered by Posh boss Darren Ferguson’s weekend sacking.
