Peterborough chief Fry confirms Arsenal, Tottenham following Ryan Bennett

Peterborough United's director of football Barry Fry is confident keeping defender Ryan Bennett.

The 21-year-old's performances have seen Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur linked with January bids, and Fry has confirmed he has previously discussed Bennett with the Premier League rivals.

"Arsenal and Spurs have been tracking Ryan for a couple of years now," Fry told the Peterborough Evening Telegraph.

"I have had conversations with them and with half-a-dozen other clubs, but it's only talk so far and I wouldn't expect that to change any time soon.

"Ryan recently signed a fresh deal with us. He's happy here and he loves working for our manager.

"Obviously if someone bid £10million that new contract wouldn't mean a lot! But that isn't likely to happen.

"There is no rush because Ryan is just going to get better and better. He's playing in a great standard of football now and has looked very impressive."
