Peterborough chief Fry: Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal all want Jones

Peterborough United are fighting to keep hold of Ricky-Jade Jones.

The Peterborough Telegraph says Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal and Leeds United all made enquiries last month.

Posh director of football Barry Fry said: "We had more clubs interested in Ricky in January than we did in Ivan Toney.

"They were all after him. United, Liverpool, Arsenal, but we told them all the same thing and that it was a waste of time bidding as we were determined to hold on to him.

"For one he is going to be a very good player for us and secondly he will be worth a lot more money a few years down the line.

"Leeds were actually the most determined to sign Ricky. They were on several times as they think Ricky is going to be the next Tammy Abraham. I told them if that's the case he must be worth £15 million already!

"In our opinion Ricky is better off developing with us and helping us be successful. He's a lovely lad with his feet on the ground."
