League One side Peterborough United have seemingly ruled out a move for out of contract pair George Boyd and Paul Coutts.
The Sheffield United and Wednesday midfielders are both looking for new clubs this summer, and having spent time previously with the Posh, both have stood out as potential signings for Darren Ferguson’s men.
However, the Posh manager has moved to rule out a move for the pair in a Twitter interview with chairman Darragh MacAnthony.
“But no, I don’t think that’s going to be feasible. He’s 33 now, we all know he’s a great player, but we have to move on. So, no, I don’t think it’s going to be feasible to bring George back.” Ferguson commented.
Boyd is something of a Peterborough legend after his previous spell with the club, and he has since gone on to make a big success of his career proving himself in the Premier League and Championship with the likes of Burnley and the Owls.
As for Coutts, who spent a year with the club earlier in his career, Ferguson also appeared to rule out a move for the Blades man.
“Great lad, a very good player for us, but no.” Ferguson added.
Peterborough are looking at making a bit of a squad overhaul this summer after missing out on the top six in the third tier this time around, with Ferguson no doubt keen to emulate some of the previous success he had with the club in his past spells with the club.
You can understand where Ferguson is coming from here but you would also think he’d take the likes of Coutts.
Coutts was instrumental in League One when Sheffield United romped to promotion a few years back, and he’d surely be a valuable asset to the Posh.
