Washington, still 21, scored 52 goals in 50 games for St Ives in the season before joining Newport County in 2012 but had a disappointing and unsuccessful trial with the Posh before moving to Wales. Newport were in the Conference then but have since won promotion to the Football League and this season Washington has been one the promotion chasing League Two clubs key players and a fans favourite. Edinburgh told The South Wales Argus: We have received an offer from Peterborough. Weve had dialogue, myself and Tim Harris, with Barry Fry and Conor is fully aware of it but as we stand now the deal isnt progressing. Theyve made an offer. Its a very good offer but I, as a manager, need to do right by the football club. Obviously its a step up for Conor, said Edinburgh. Its on his doorstep and theyre a good club doing very well with players from the lower levels. Its a fantastic opportunity for him and one that we have to be realistic and honest about. Any individual wants to better himself. He hasnt knocked my door down but he has made me aware that it is a fantastic opportunity for him. I hope we dont lose him but you can never say never. If I sat here and said thats not going to happen between now and the end of the window that wouldnt be truthful because things happen. But right now hes focused and hell be in the squad for Saturday.
