Sky Bet League 1 side Peterborough United have rejected a bid from an unnamed Premier League side for Leo Da Silva Lopes, according to the Peterborough Telegraph.
The 18-year-old Portuguese midfielder has been one of the standout performers for Peterborough United, who currently sit in 9th place, just two points and three places from the play-off positions.
Da Silva Lopes has featured in twenty-one League 1 games this season and has begun to attract attention from both the Championship and the Premier League.
The Portuguese midfielder’s impressive display in the FA Cup third round fixture against Chelsea seemed to thrust the Peterborough academy product into the limelight.
Peterborough Director of Football Barry Fry has revealed that Posh have rejected a bid from an unnamed Premier League side for Da Silva Lopes.
However, it appears that this may be the beginning of a long transfer window for Grant McCann and Peterborough United fans as more bids from the Premier League are expected to come in for the Portuguese starlet.
