Peterborough boss Ferguson: I wanted West Brom's Simpson

Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson admits he tried to sign Arsenal striker Jay Simpson last year.

Simpson struck for West Brom in last night's FA Cup victory as Ferguson lamented: "He is a lad I know well and I watched him for Arsenal a couple of times but he went to Millwall last season.

"He's a quality player and I thought his first goal showed that. I thought he was outstanding for them."
