Marquis was linked with Posh by a Hampshire news outlet earlier today (May 18), but MacAnthony was quick to shoot that rumour down on Twitter.

Posh are currently negotiating fresh contracts with several players including defenders Frankie Kent, Nathan Thompson and Dan Butler. Teenage defender Ronnie Edwards a player nicknamed ‘Franz’ after German great Beckenbauer by MacAnthony, signed a new four-year deal this afternoon.

MacAnthony did say: “There should be plenty of news this week. We are negotiating contracts, and bids for new players have been made. We certainly haven’t gone on holiday.
