Birmingham City have contacted Peterborough about the availability of a number of their players, according to Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony.
Pep Clotet’s Birmingham side have struggled to find consistency this term and following two defeats last week – sit in the bottom half of the Championship table.
A 2-0 defeat in midweek to Queens Park Rangers saw the Blues struggle, but they did bounce back and produce a better performance in the 3-2 defeat to league leaders West Bromwich Albion on Saturday morning.
With the January transfer window fast approaching, Clotet could potentially bring in some added options with goalscoring becoming a key problem at the club, having seen Alvaro Gimenez and Lukas Jutkiewicz struggle.
With plenty of rumours being sparked by media, fans and pundits alike – one fan took to social media to question Peterborough chairman MacAnthony on whether the Blues had made contact over any of his players.
MacAnthony was asked if Birmingham had made an offer for Marcus Maddison, who has been in superb form this term.
That’s according to Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony who was responding to a Blues fan on Twitter.
MacAnthony replied rejecting the news, but did confirm their had been contact about other players.
No.. But have called about other players recently. https://t.co/z7gG2Zokjf

What a superb addition Marcus Maddison would be to Birmingham, but saying that – so would Ivan Toney or Mo Eisa.
Peterborough are in a dangerous position in January having such a good group of attacking players, who are all in superb form.
MacAnthony looks braced for a number of bids this January and it will be interesting to see if he can keep hold of his talented trio.
