Paul Taylor offer turned down by Peterborough

Paul Taylor

Peterborough United have turned down an offer from an unnamed club for transfer-listed striker Paul Taylor.

The 24-year-old and winger George Boyd were both made available in April after failing to agree new contracts with the Championship club.

Taylor played the entire 90 minutes in Wednesday's friendly against Aston Villa, which Posh lost 2-0.

"We've had a bid for Paul but nowhere near what we require," boss Darren Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

"It's not near our valuation so we'll wait and see what happens."

Taylor has scored 12 goals for Peterborough since joining them in March last year after a spell in Belgian football with Montegnee and Anderlecht.

Meanwhile, Irish winger Danny Kearns could be fit for the start of the season despite injuring his ankle against Villa.

Physio Chris Burton told the club's website that an x-ray had revealed no fracture to either the foot or ankle.external-link

"There is extensive bruising and soft tissue damage to the inside of the foot and unfortunately he has suffered medial ligament damage to the right knee.

"He will now undergo treatment and rehabilitation and hopefully will return to full fitness in time for the opening Championship game of the season," said Burton.
