Fry had been looking to prise sought-after Lincoln defender Ben Futcher away from Sincil Bank but has seen his advances rebuffed this week.
A bid in the region of £100,000 was thought to be in the offing but Imps boss Keith Alexander has declined to cash in on his prized asset.
''Nothing's happening with Ben,'' Fry told skysports.com
''There's nothing on the horizon and there won't be any signings before the weekend.''
The Posh have been struck by a catalogue of injuries of late, with forwards Leon Constantine, Matt Logan, Calum Willock and Richard Logan all unlikely to be fit to figure this weekend.
Fry had hoped to land an unnamed Premiership striker but this deal too has been cursed by an untimely injury.
''I had looked at someone but now they are injured,'' continued Fry.
''Nothing is going to happen there either.''
