Millwall target Peterborough ace
Millwall transfer news: Lions linked with Peterborough United striker Tyrone Barnett
Millwall are reportedly lining up an offer for Peterborough United striker Tyrone Barnett.
Posh broke their record transfer, spending over £1 million on Barnett last summer.
But the striker has struggled to make an impact at London Road and was deemed surplus to requirements by Darren Ferguson after the club’s relegation from Championship.
Peterborough United chief exectuive Barry Fry confirmed to the Peterborough Evening Telegraph that Millwall are interested in the former Crawley man, saying: “I’ve spoken to Millwall manager Steve Lomas and to their chief executive Andy Ambler, but it’s only gone as far as an enquiry.”
“There hasn’t been a bid yet, but they are interested,” Fry confirmed.
If Millwall were to follow through with their enquiry and make an acceptable bid for the front-man it would draw to a close a turbulent time for Barnett at Posh.
The striker made a great initial start to life at London Road, scoring four times in his first six games.
But, after picking up an injury, Barnett has only scored a solitary goal and he was loaned out to Ipswich Town last season, although his time there was cut short due to injury.
