Hall impressed at Roots Hall last season, netting 14 goals and 25 assists in all competitions, and his assist return was the highest by any player in all leagues in England.

The former Crystal Palace man's showings have attracted interest from a host of Championship clubs and Peterborough have made a firm offer for Hall.

However, Southend have rejected Posh's bid as they look to keep hold of the 24-year-old.

It remains to be seen if Peterborough come back with a new offer for Hall with the player having just a year to run on his contract at Southend.
