Peterborough United boss Barry Fry says he will leave the club for £600,000.Peterborough United boss Barry Fry has revealed that he would leave the club, should he receive £600,000.
The former Birmingham City manager made the comments following Friday's 5-0 thumping at promotion-chasing Tranmere Rovers.
The result leaves The Posh nine points adrift of safety in League One, with Fry already resigned to seeing the club relegated at the season's end.
With supporters calling for Fry to leave, the Peterborough owner surprisingly stated what it would take for him to exit his position at London Road.
"The fans know what it will take to get me out," Fry told the Peterborough Evening Telegraph.
"If I was offered £600,000, I'd leave yesterday - even though I'd be taking a loss on what I've put into the club.
"I will soldier on because I am no quitter and there is no alternative. I expect to be in charge at the start of next season, unless I'm paid off.
"Peterborough is a vast, expanding city and if every supporter and business chipped in a quid each, they'd raise the £600,000 quickly."
Fry, meanwhile, has insisted that none of his players will be sold before Thursday's transfer window, despite receiving bids for Craig Ireland, Calum Willock and Curtis Woodhouse last week.
"We have talked with three different clubs about the three players and I have said no, no and no," Fry added to the club's official website.
"All three players are under contract with us next year and whatever league we are win, we will need those three players with us.
"Unless it is what I call a 'silly bid', then I don't envisage anyone leaving."
