QPR enter Mackail-Smith race

Leicester City and West Ham are thought to head a list of suitors

for a player who scored 35 goals last season. It was expected the

talented striker would move to the Foxes after Posh chairman

Darragh MacAnthony said on Friday a deal was looking imminent. But

QPR are now also thought to be in the running though and Fry has

now revealed he is waiting on an answer from the Scotland

international. With Peterborough unable to make market moves of

their own until the transfer has been sorted, Peterborough director

of football Fry admits he is becoming increasingly frustrated by

the situation. “I can tell you that the chairman Darragh MacAnthony

has accepted three bids and given three clubs permission to speak

to Craig and his agent, two of those clubs, West Ham and Leicester

have spoken to them,” he told Talk Sport. “Prior to that Neil

Warnock at QPR was given permission to talk to him but I haven’t

spoken to Craig for three days so he obviously hasn’t agreed terms

with West Ham or Leicester. “There are seven other bids that we’ve

turned down that are very substantial, four other clubs have been

on to me to say that they’re selling their centre forward for so

much and they want to put half of that into buying Craig, things

like that. “We’ve given Craig the opportunity to speak to three

clubs and as of yet he’s not decided to go anywhere which is very

frustrating from our point of view. “The boy scored 35 goals in the

league last year, he’s got 99 goals in four seasons with

Peterborough, the chairman said stay another year help us get back

into the Championship and we won’t stand in your way. “We were

hoping that he’d be gone by now because we’ve got targets as well

that we’re trying to get in.”
