A journalist working for the Sun believes that Peterborough striker Ivan Toney is on the verge of a move to Premier League hopefuls Brentford amid reported interest from Rangers and Celtic.

The 24-year-old striker was reportedly subject to a £4m bid from Celtic which was booted out by Peterborough with reports suggesting the Celtic Park side had stolen a march on Rangers.

However, Jordan Davies believes that Brentford are “on the verge” of securing a four-year deal for the player potentially worth £9m.

Toney is known to be valued at £10m plus £2m in add-ons by Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony.

“We’ve already said to clubs out there we want 10 plus two,” MacAnthony said [Sky Sports, via Bristol Live].

“Ten million as a fee and £2m in add-ons, that’s the number that would turn our heads.”


MacAnthony also took to Twitter to tell a fan to “behave” when asked if Peterborough would sell Toney, 24, for £4m.


The Peterborough chairman then also announced they would rather keep the player – who has one year left on his contract – than sell him for the lowly fee.

MacAnthony would also confirm that the club have had multiple bids for the player from the Premiership, Championship and one team in Scotland.

Any Rangers move for the player is said to be dependent on the prospective sale of Alfredo Morelos to Lille, who are reportedly expected to return with a second bid for the player.

But now it appears as if Toney could be on his way to the Premier League and Brentford who are preparing for the Championship play-off final against either Fulham or Cardiff.
