Peterborough United captain Grant McCann has said he would like to finish his career at the club.

The 31-year-old Northern Ireland international has 18 months remaining on his current deal.

He told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "I would like to end my career at Peterborough, but it's down to the club to offer me something.McCann keen to stay with the Posh

"Having said that, I'm not angling for a new contract as I'm happy just playing my football."

Newspaper reports on Tuesday linked the Northern Ireland international with a move to promotion-chasing Southampton, but he was quick to rule out a switch to the south coast.

"Rumours start all the time and I don't know where this one has come from as there's no reason for me to be going anywhere," McCann said.

"It's always nice to be linked with other clubs, but it's the sort of thing you just laugh off really."

Posh boss Darren Ferguson added that transfer speculation is just a part of football after defender Ryan Bennett and striker Paul Taylor were both been linked with moves away from London Road in recent weeks.

"Speculation about my players makes no odds to me and we've turned down plenty of offers in the past," Ferguson said.

"We're certainly not a selling club, but we will sell players if the time is right."
