Brentford manager Thomas Frank has confirmed former Peterborough United striker Ivan Toney will earn his old club a few million quid this summer.

Toney is expected to leave the Bees for a massive transfer fee at the end of the season which could be a boost for Posh who have a decent sell-on percentage on any amount above the £10 million fee they received for the 27 year-old in August, 2020.

Toney has returned from his betting ban in decent nick. He scored his third goal in four games in Brentford’s 2-0 Premier League win at Wolves.
