PETERBOROUGH chairman  Darragh MacAnthony has rejected a bid from Forest Green for striker Matt Stephens, according to reports.

Stevens,21, is highly-regarded at Peterborough and burst onto the scene at Barnet as a teenager and he was the subject of a £400,000 bid from then Premier League Swansea during his time at Underhill.

“Forest Green offered us £25k for Matty Stevens, a prolific goalscorer wherever he’s played on loan and that’s not nowhere near enough for us," MacAnthony told the Peterborough Telegraph.
