Peterborough United were in contact with Sheffield Wednesday during the January transfer window, according to Posh owner Darragh MacAnthony.

Asked on Twitter if his side had been in touch with Wednesday, MacAnthony claimed Peterborough's director of football Barry Fry had spoken to the Owls' new chief executive Katrien Meire earlier this week.

It remains to be seen, however, which of the two clubs' players - if any - were discussed.

Wednesday experienced a quiet final day, with young Owls midfielder Matt Penney the only player to move in or out - the latter, in his case - of Hillsborough.
