Darragh MacAnthony responds when asked whether Leeds United or Wolverhampton Wanderers were interested in Conor Washington

Inside Loftus Road

Peterborough United sold Conor Washington to Queens Park Rangers yesterday, but Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers were both linked with the striker.

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony says that Leeds United did not have any interest in signing Conor Washington.

Washington had been linked with Leeds earlier in the transfer window, but he completed a move to Queens Park Rangers instead yesterday.

And it seems that the Yorkshire club did not attempt to sign the 23-year-old hitman.

MacAnthony has previously confirmed that Leeds have made enquiries about Peterborough players during this window, as reported by HITC.

The Irish owner was also asked whether Wolverhampton Wanderers had an interest in Washington.

Wolves had been heavily linked with the in-form striker, and it seems that there was basis behind the reports.

Kenny Jackett’s side made an enquiry for Washington, but they did not follow up their interest with a formal offer.

Washington has signed a three-and-a-half year deal at QPR, and will wear the number nine shirt for the London club.
