Peterborough United have accepted an offer from Leicester City for sought-after striker Craig Mackail-Smith.

Posh director of football Barry Fry also revealed West Ham are interested in the 27-year-old, adding the forward has rejected moves to Norwich and QPR.

Everton and Wigan are also reported to be keen on recruiting Posh's £3m-rated top scorer.

"We have accepted a bid from Leicester," Fry told the Peterborough Evening Newsexternal-link.

"Their manager Sven-Goran Eriksson is out of the country at the moment, but was due to speak to Craig over the weekend.

"I have had several conversations with West Ham, but we have turned down their bid. I am certain they will be back.

"Craig is facing a tough decision. He turned down Norwich and he has now turned down QPR."

Fry also told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire he hopes to make "four or five" signings before the end of the week, in time for the team's pre-season trip to Portugal.
