Peterborough United have made a bid to re-sign striker Aaron McLean on loan.

The 31-year-old was a big hit at London Road before leaving to join Hull City for a fee in excess of £1million.

McLean has seen his career stall since then, and is now out of favour at current club Bradford City.

Now, Posh are attempting to lure the striker back on loan but face competition from two League Two clubs.

“The chairman is speaking to Barry Fry regarding the money Peterborough are prepared to pay towards his wages.

At the moment, their offer is less than what we have been offered from the clubs in a lower division.

Aaron wants to go to Peterborough, and you can understand that, but it’s a difficult one when we’ve already been offered more."

– Phil Parkinson, Bradford City manager

Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick has been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad for the first time.

The 26-year-old has been in superb form since joining Town from Nottingham Forest back in 2013, and he was linked with an £8million move to Leicester City in the summer.

McGoldrick has formed a potent strike partnership with Daryl Murphy at Portman Road, and now the duo will be able to combine at international level.
