Posh director of football Barry Fry said: “We’ve been turning bids down, left, right and centre all summer, but there has been no attempt to cash in by the owners because they and the manager are on the same page. They want promotion above all else this season.

"Of course ridiculous offers could work, but there has been no sign of that sort of bid so I fully expect us to start the season with the squad currently in the building.

"We have good players here who have attracted sizeable bids, some of more than a million pounds, but none have interested us.

“We do tell the players when someone comes in for them and the bid has been rejected and to be honest all of them understand what’s going on. The players are also fully committed to us getting to the Championship.”
