Peterborough United bid for Southend United stars Ryan Hall and Kane Ferdinand
PETERBOROUGH United last night lodged a double bid for Southend United stars Ryan Hall and Kane Ferdinand.
The Championship club are keen to bring in the Blues’ duo ahead of the transfer window closing tonight.
But their combined offer is still being considered by the Roots Hall hierarchy.
It promises to be a busy day of transfer activity at Blues as the Echo can also reveal that another member of Paul Sturrock’s first team squad is close to leaving the club on loan.
However, Southend are working hard to bring in players themselves.
They remain in talks with two strikers over a switch to Roots Hall and have also spoken to a pair of midfielders who are currently on the books of a Championship club.
