Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has poured cold water on reports suggesting Reading want Darren Ferguson to be their new manager.
The Royals are in the market for a new boss following Steve Coppell's decision to stand down last month, but MacAnthony is determined to hold on to a man who has guided The Posh to two successive promotions.
He told the club's official website: "I'd like to confirm that my priority is to Peterborough United Football Club and doing what's right for us.
"I appreciate that in football this goes on all the time, but I'm not one to be bullied into selling our best assets unless it suits us.
"The sooner the summer comes to a close and the new season starts, the better, so we can get on with achieving our third promotion campaign."
