Peterborough have seen their final bid for Accrington Stanley’s Colby Bishop rejected, as reported by Football Insider.
The report states Posh have seen multiple bids rejected for Bishop, and that the move is now dead.
Football Insider reported at the weekend that Peterborough, as well as Preston North End and Huddersfield Town, were all interested parties, but with Posh out of the running, this latest update will come as a boost for the aforementioned duo.
Bishop netted 12 times for the League One outfit last season, registering six assists in the process, but he is yet to contribute this season after five games.
The forward, who signed for Stanley from Leamington in 2019, emerged through the academy at Notts County, before building his way back into the professional game with the likes of Worcester City and Boston United, before enjoying a prolific spell with Leamington, scoring 28 times in 49 games.
A lot of Championship clubs needed to bolster their attacking options after a low-scoring second-tier last season.
Bishop is a player who poses a constant goal threat and has the desire and intelligent attacking movement to cause defenders all sorts of havoc.
Bishop and Dion Charles formed an excellent working relationship last time out, and whilst it seems that the latter has attracted the most attention, speculation regarding the former is now building.
Huddersfield have made a decent start to the new Championship season, but a young, hungry striker like Bishop would certainly boost them, whilst Preston manager Franke McAvoy has stated that he would like to bring in a forward or two.
