Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has refused to deny the rumours linking Ryan Tafazolli with Hull City.

HITC broke the news that Hull were interested in signing Tafazolli and MacAnthony was quickly asked about the rumours.

And the Posh chairman confirmed that he is currently fielding offers for a number of his players.

Posh also have Jack Marriott and Marcus Maddison who are high in demand.

Tafazolli hasn’t stole as many headlines as the attacking duo, but the powerful centre-back is also enjoying a fine season at League One level.

Tafazolli has formed a rock solid partnership in the heart of Posh’s defence with Steven Taylor, and Hull now reportedly have their eyes on the commanding defender.

Hull’s defence has been particularly leaky this season, with the Tigers having the third worst defensive record of any side in the Championship this season.

Nigel Adkins is likely to be looking to improve Hull’s backline this month, with Tafazolli believed to be one of the first names on his wishlist.
