Injury Round-Up



Posh Accept Maddison Bid

Charlton Athletic have had an undisclosed bid for Marcus Maddison accepted by Peterborough United. Posh have revealed that they rejected two other offers from Championship clubs. Maddison has been linked with clubs such as Leeds United and Hull City in the past.


FA Warn McBurnie

Sheffield United's Scotland international striker Oli McBurnie has been warned by the Football Association to remember his responsibilities after a video appeared of him on social media, which showed him in the crowd for the South Wales derby supporting his previous club Swansea City as they took on Cardiff City. McBurnie appeared to make an obscene gesture during the footage and that led to an FA notice.


Wright Reveals Kennedy Interest

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright has revealed that there is interest from SPFL sides Heart of Midlothian and Aberdeen in Saints' winger Matty Kennedy. Kennedy is out of contract in the summer and Wright said: "Aberdeen are probably close to agreeing a pre-contract with him. Hearts made contact yesterday and I want him to stay. There are three scenarios at the moment. I want him to remain here until the end of the season and I can't see that being a problem. I don't think it's in our interest to let him go now. It's important we stay in the league and it's important that we hold on to our best players. We are a well run club, we don't need to sell. The only way that would happen is if everything was 100% what St Johnstone needed."


Ryan Donates To Australian Wildlife Rescue

Brighton & Hove Albion goalkeeper Mat Ryan is to donate Aus$28,000 to a wildlife rescue fund in his home nation of Australia. The Aussie international had pledged to donate Aus$500 per save made in the Premier League at the weekend to help out his country in the wake of the bushfire crisis. Ryan made 5 saves himself to help towards the total of 56. Ryan had said on social media: "In light of the devastation caused by the bushfires back home, I'm donating 500 Australian dollars for every registered save by all Premier League goalkeepers across every Premier League fixture for this weekend. I've chosen to donate to the Wires wildlife rescue emergency fund. Thank you to all for your support thus far and as a nation we really do appreciate your gratitude and generosity. However, there continues to be homes lost, lives of both people and animals lost or in danger, along with whole communities, businesses and more. I hope we can continue in the same manner and continue to encourage and influence people into raising money for those affected."
