    I don't know. He's just 'transfer listed' on their website but he isn't in the category of 'transfer list(last year of contract)' so I suppose a fee would be needed.

    I wouldn't take Nabi. Only scored 3 goals in his entire career and played in India for Delhi Dynamos!

    As his name is Inman I was just expecting him to be free.

    The posh chairman was replying about Mansfield and saying they would finish top two, to which a city fan replied above or below cov.

    So we aren't signing anyone off them!

    But then he followed up by saying 'funnily enough they were asking about one of ours today' (or words to that effect; too lazy to try and find actual quote :D) which I read to mean us too.

    Maddison Is never League Two. Shouldn't even be League One so it won't be him

    According to their chairman, Inman isn't in the Managers plans any more. Can guess there will be a fee.

    But on a slight aside, its refreshing to see a chairman communicating so openly to fans on social media. Most of them hide away in their boardrooms and treat fans like pond life.

    He said they are not being unreasonable with their listed players and everything is negotiable. By the sounds of that only a small fee would be required for Inman

    Glad I'm not as young as that. Can't wait until my youngest is 18 so I can retire. It's bad enough dropping my lad off at school and being older than some grandparents :smuggrin:

    I started later in life, so my lad is on his way to Secondary school in September and I have just retired (albeit early!) I have a mate younger than me who is a grandparent to a lad only a year younger than my lad. Messes with my head, sometimes - though if you had seen me at Wembley I reverted to teenage behaviour, and am still a big kid at heart!

    Would you prefer that we put in bids that were accepted first time every time?

    When there is other teams sniffing around it's a bit pointless being way off 'when other bids are in motion'

    Michael Smith according to the CT.

    His name had crossed my mind when I saw the list of Peterborough's transfer-listed players - but largely because I thought he was James Smith the ex Swindon (now Portsmouth) player that Presley had tried to sign,

    I think we've done the right thing in putting a poor offer in first it tests the water to what all parties are looking at rather than wasting a budget we need to get so much from and a first bid being accepted.

    It is encouraging for us fans tho that MR is still looking to add vital experience to the squad and getting in blooded league players with plenty of games under there belt if he can

    Telegraph now saying a fee has been agreed? Can't see where that's been said though?

    the owner said a few hours ago it was nowhere near.

    Peterborough fans say he's ordinary and are certainly not bothered about losing him

    It might of been a bid for Brad Inman that he was referring to.
