Posh chief blasts McLean

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has hit out at the contract demands of striker Aaron McLean, who has handed in a transfer request at London Road. The 25-year-old is the target of a big-money approach from Wolves, but MacAnthony is less than happy with the way McLean has approached the situation. He told the Evening Telegraph: "I have always promised Aaron that I would not stand in his way if a Premier League club came in for him. "Aaron phoned me last week, thanked me for my support, asked if he could take me up on my previous offer of a new contract and said that he would now like to stay at the club. "I then spoke to his agent for a good hour on the phone, but I nearly fell over when he set out the terms Aaron wanted. "Anyhow 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."
