Swansea striker Leon Knight has rejected the chance to join Peterborough.
Swansea striker Leon Knight has hit out at his manager Kenny Jackett and in the process dismissed the notion of joining either Peterborough or Northampton.
The diminutive 24-year-old was surprisingly placed on the transfer list by Jackett, despite an impressive record that has seen him plunder 20 goals in 25 starts at the Liberty Stadium outfit.
Cash-rich Peterborough had looked in pole position to land Knight's signature when they had a bid accepted but the player has absolutely no inclination to make a switch to London Road.
Angry that Jackett had, in his opinion, gone behind his back, Knight went on to explain that finding a new club should be left to his agent.
"With all respect, there is no chance I'll be going to either of those clubs and I'm not going to be rushed out of the door by Kenny Jackett," said Knight.
"Barry Fry was quality about it and wished me all the best in getting the right move.
"I told Jackett when I first went on the transfer list that my agent and I would sort out finding a new club for me.
"I'm prepared to wait until January because I'm not in any rush. But I've scored 20 goals in 25 starts so I think I can get a move to a club at least as big as Swansea, if not bigger."
