Peterborough to battle Millwall for £500,00 Jack Payne after impressing on loan at BradfordJanuary 12, 2019
PETERBOROUGH have stepped up their interest in Bradford’s on-loan star Jack Payne.
SunSport reported last week Millwall were keen on the Huddersfield playmaker who has impressed during his stint at Valley Parade.
The 24-year-old’s displays in League One have caught the eye scoring eight times in 26 games from midfield.
Huddersfield value Payne £500,000 despite their man having six months left on his current deal.
And now the Posh have enquired about the stylish midfielder’s availability this month to help their promotion charge in the second half of the season.
Payne is not in David Wagner’s long-term plans at the John Smith’s Stadium and is keen for his future to be resolved.
