Posh turned down Oxford offer

Oxford-604905Peterborough owner and chairman Darragh MacAnthony has revealed he turned down the chance to sign Reece Oxford in this January transfer window.

Adrian Durham and Jason Cundy asked MacAnthony about loaning players from the Premier League on TalkSport radio last Friday.

MacAnthony explained “Terry Westley is brilliant, every few days he is on to the manager speaking about Martin Samuelson; so much so they offered the young boy (Reece) Oxford.

They offered us other players from West Ham because they are so impressed with what we are doing with Samuelson. West Ham have left us to get on with Martin, we want to make Martin into a man now, Martin is 18/19, there are things West Ham might not do that we do that are good for Martin.

“You have other clubs we have dealt with that are a pain in the arse, they close their eyes and don’t care. I have got into rows about it. “

Asked whether Reece Oxford would be joining Posh, MacAnthony answered “No, because of the areas we are covered in, he is probably going to the Championship but he was offered to us first.”

  1. Shame but as he says if they have those positions covered then better he is somewhere that he is guaranteed game time.
