The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE PLAY-OFF PREVIEW - By Richard Dore

PETER­BOR­OUGH say they have turned down a £250,000 bid from another League One club for striker Ricky Miller – be­fore the player of­fi­cially joins them! Miller has yet to for­mally join Posh af­ter sign­ing a three-year deal which be­gins when his Dover con­tract ex­pires. He is ex­pected to link up with the London Road club in June. But Posh chair­man Dar­ragh MacAn­thony re­vealed that a club has al­ready tried to sign him be­fore he has even played for Peter­bor­ough The 28-year-old scored 42 goals for the Na­tional League side this term. “That could have been the eas­i­est stock trans­ac­tion of my life. We turned it down. He’s a big part of my plans,” MacAn­thony said. “I want Ricky to win the golden boot, pos­si­bly this year, in com­pe­ti­tion with any other strik­ers we bring in.” Peter­bor­ough-born Miller, who Posh orig­i­nally tried to sign in Jan­uary, will link up with his new team­mates for pre-sea­son train­ing at the end of June. Di­rec­tor of foot­ball Barry Fry has been chasing Miller for some time and had a bid knocked back by Dover in Jan­uary. “Ricky has done bril­liantly to score the amount of goals he has and, hope­fully, he will come here and hit the ground run­ning,” Fry said.
