Peterborough Director of Football Barry Fry has said that Ivan Toney will not be leaving London Road for any price during the January transfer window.
The forward has been repeatedly linked with Middlesbrough among a host of other clubs and responding to the latest enquiry from Bristol City, Fry made it clear in no uncertain terms that the 23-year-old will be staying at the League One club:
“Bristol City have shown interest in Ivan and we do have a good relationship with them, but there is zero chance of Ivan going anywhere in January.”
“I have had eight Championship clubs ask about Ivan as well as a couple from the Premier League, but my answer is always the same. There is not enough money in this transfer window to even tempt us into talking about selling Ivan Toney.”
Peterborough have reportedly slapped a £9m price tag on Toney so a bid from Boro was always going to be unlikely unless they had managed to sell Britt Assombalonga this month.
Toney has been in excellent form this campaign, having scored 17 goals in 31 appearances for the Posh, but the League One outfit have seemingly lowered their asking price for the player.
Chairman Darragh MacAnthony had originally stated that a club would have to break the League One record of £13m, but it appears he could go for quite a bit less.
