Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony has denied making a bid for Hatters striker Andre Gray, writes Mike Simmonds.

Speculation had been rife after the Posh supremo, plus manager Darren Ferguson and his coaching staff were at Kenilworth Road for the 3-0 friendly win against Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday.

Conducting an impromptu question and answer session on his Twitter page, when asked if Peterborough had made a bid for Gray, MacAnthony answered: “Nope. I’m sure our scouts will continue watching all non league talent & he’s talented for sure.”

Town manager John Still also played down the interest from the League One side, who recently offloaded star striker Dwight Gayle to Crystal Palace in a big money move.

Coincidentally, Still had sold Gayle to Peterborough when at former club Dagenham & Redbridge and quizzed about the London Road management team in attendance, he said: “You’ll have to ask Darren Ferguson.

“I’ve come here from a club where we sold players regularly and I think when you have people watching your club, it’s compliment to the football club.”
