Ryan Tafazolli celebrates an FA Cup goal for Posh at Aston Villa last season.

Tafazolli has entered the last season of a three-year Posh deal and normally that would mean a place on the transfer list, but chairman Darragh MacAnthony is relaxed about the 26 year-old’s decision and will try and persuade him to extend his stay at the club later in the campaign.

MacAnthony also revealed Posh have turned down bids for the player.

MacAnthony used his Twitter account to say: “(Ryan) wants to see our season which we have no problem with at all. I’ll have another crack at him during (the) season.
