'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Peterborough priced out of Cody move

Peterborough United chairman Darragh McAnthony says his club have been priced out of a move for Cody McDonald.

McAnthony, fresh from finally selling Craig Mackail-Smith to Brighton wrote on his Twitter page:

'Have tried to buy CMD for 6 weeks. Norwich want over 550 grand. Dont think he has ever played for them. Good luck to them with that price.'

McDonald scored 25 goals on loan at Gillingham last season and was named the club's player of the year.

He is considered one of the hottest properties in the Football League and has been linked with a number of clubs during the summer so far, most of which choose to do their business in private.

I think 550k is cheap, was expecting 750k for CMD, and a nice little sell-on clause too. Oh, and he has played for us quite a few times Mr, McAnthony. Can do better than P'boro.

550k for a player who scored 25 goals last season is definitely not over the odds. If you don't want to pay the price Posh, go somewhere else!

Could be worth 2m and a place in the Premier squad after a another six months or a year out on loan, but in the Championship this season. He may have been happy to stay at Gillingham, but he's got talent to hit the heights of the Championship for sure and Premiership possibly, in the same way a number of the Norwich squad have made it from Non-League to the top within a few short years.
