Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has moved to quell suggestions Lincoln City could be in line to take one of their surplus midfielders to Sincil Bank.
The O’Hara situation has rumbled on all summer and despite being on the transfer list throughout, he’s still with Posh.
He spent time on loan with Lincoln last season, helping them to the League Two title and it had been believed that the Imps were back in for him this summer. However, with little over a week of the transfer window remaining, MacAnthony has moved quickly to dispel talk that a move back to Sincil Bank is imminent.
When asked on Twitter about the links, he simply replied; “Not happening.”
Woodyard has even firmer connections with the Imps, having played for manager Danny Cowley at Braintree, Concord Rangers and later Lincoln. He was part of the side that won promotion from the National League, winning Player of the Year that season, then helped them to the EFL Trophy victory a year later.
Peterborough picked up a fine win this weekend, 4-0 away at MK Dons, seemingly putting their difficult start to the season well and truly behind them.
Both players have firm connections with Lincoln and surely Danny Cowley would welcome one or the other back with open arms.
O’Hara would seem the obvious choice, he adds height and versatility to any squad and has played for the Imps recently.
However, Woodyard was always a favourite of the former Braintree manager and would sit nicely in the 4-2-3-1 formation the Imps like. It’s also thought he can go out on loan if a permanent deal can’t be reached, but surely wouldn’t be able to play against Posh when the two sides meet.
