McLean comes off Posh list
17 Jul 2008 - 12:56:21
Peterborough United have confirmed that unsettled striker Aaron McLean has been taken off the transfer list and will now remain at London Road.
Last season's 33-goal top-scorer had angered Posh officials after handing in a transfer request at the beginning of the month.
The 25-year-old had asked to leave the newly-promoted League One side after they rejected two bids for his services from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Chairman Darragh MacAnthony was openly critical of the striker, but the matter now appears to have been resolved.
"Peterborough United striker Aaron McLean has been taken off the transfer list at his own request," confirmed a brief club statement.
Previously an angry MacAnthony had claimed: "I offered Aaron the best contract this club has seen and his agent laughed at it. Aaron asked for a transfer the following day.
"I am afraid his head is all over the place and this happens in football.
"If Wolves believe in him as much as I always have, they know the price it will take to buy him.
"If they don't then he stays and plays for his place in our team as per his current contract."
