Peterborough United say they have reluctantly placed defender Gabriel Zakuani on the transfer list after the DR Congo international rejected a new deal.

The former Fulham and Leyton Orient player told the club website he wanted the move to further his international aspirations.

He said:

"I want to continue playing for my country and feel I have to give myself every chance of being selected by the national coach.

"I have always given 100 per cent for the cause and this was a very difficult decision for me to make."
