Posh ward off Lewis suitors

11 June 2008 07:19
Peterborough United have claimed that even a £3million bid would not be enough to tempt them to sell goalkeeper Joe Lewis. The 20-year-old, who only joined the Posh in January for £400,000 from Norwich City, recently won a call-up into the senior England squad, amid talk of interest in him from Everton. Director of football Barry Fry told the Evening Telegraph: "He's going to be a top, top goalkeeper and newspapers stories linking him with big clubs are no surprise. "But it's all paper talk at the moment. I've heard nothing from Everton, but that doesn't mean they're not interested. "Manchester United and Liverpool were represented when we played at Wrexham last season, but no-one should read anything into that. Sir Alex Ferguson was there to support his son and Liverpool are usually represented at all Wrexham games. "Our position remains the same. We have no need or desire to sell any of our star players. "We're building a team to win things, not so we can sell players on for profit and £3million would not be enough anyway."
