Peterborough United owner Darragh MacAnthony has decided against signing Tyler Walker this summer. The 43-year-old was asked by a supporter on Twitter whether he was interested in the Nottingham Forest striker for next season and responded with one word – “nope”.

MacAnthony recently said he wouldn’t have a problem doing business with Forest despite past issues over transfers, but he doesn’t appear keen on bringing Walker to the ABAX Stadium. The form of Ivan Toney (44 games, 16 goals), Matt Godden (38 games, 14 goals), Marcus Maddison (40 games, eight goals) at Peterborough in 2018/19 might be the reason why.

United aren’t showing in an interest in Walker, but a number of other Football League sides may be keen on his signature this summer. The 22-year-old impressed during a season-long loan at Mansfield Town, scoring 26 goals in 52 games for the Stags, and he’s in line to return to Forest’s first-team next season as a result.

Martin O’Neill could be inundated with offers for Walker, but it’s unlikely he’ll be allowed to leave this summer. Forest have Lewis Grabban, Daryl Murphy, Karim Ansarifard and Hillal Soudani to choose from in attack, but Walker could be the future at the City Ground.
