Peterborough United’s Director of Football, Barry Fry, has issued a stern warning to potential suitors vying for the services of their prolific striker, Jonson Clarke-Harris, as the transfer window swings open.
Despite interest from several quarters, Fry made it clear that the club will not part ways with the Reggae Boy on the cheap.
Clarke-Harris, 29, has been a standout performer for the East England club, particularly with his goal-scoring abilities.
Having claimed the Golden Boot with 26 goals in the previous season, he has continued his impressive form, finding the net 10 times in 24 appearances across all competitions this season.
Fry emphasised Clarke-Harris’s significance not just as a goal-scorer but also as a positive influence within the club. “He won’t be leaving for peanuts. His scoring record is outstanding, and he’s a great bloke to have around the club, even when he isn’t playing. He’s been unbelievable with the younger players,” Fry stated.
The striker, initially placed on the transfer list at the end of the last season when Peterborough fell short of securing promotion to the Championship, saw a move to Bristol Rovers worth £800,000 collapse late on deadline day in September.
However, he swiftly regained his scoring form for Peterborough, including a notable brace against Mansfield.
Despite limited starts in recent months, Clarke-Harris returned to the starting lineup with a two-goal performance against Barnsley, further solidifying his worth to the team.
Fry emphasised that the striker’s value extends beyond his goal-scoring abilities, highlighting his contributions in crucial moments and his mentorship of younger players.
While initial reports linked Clarke-Harris to a potential move to Bristol Rovers, it is suggested that interest from the club has waned following the departure of manager Joey Barton.
Instead, Fleetwood Town is now reportedly eyeing a move for the Reggae Boy during this transfer window.
