After securing promotion from League One earlier this year, it was always going to be intriguing to see how Peterborough United would fare in the Championship during the opening stages of the 2021/22 campaign.
Although Posh have shown some signs of promise in recent months, they are currently in the relegation zone and are facing an uphill task to retain their second-tier status.
With the transfer window set to open next month, Peterborough may need to sign some players in order to boost their chances of avoiding the drop.
Posh may also be willing to part ways with some of their fringe players who have failed to make an impact at this level this season.
Here, we have decided to take a look at TWO big transfer decisions Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson could need to make in the coming weeks…
Can Ferguson secure a reasonable fee for Christy Pym?
After starting the current campaign as Peterborough’s first-choice goalkeeper, Christy Pym fell out of favour at the Weston Homes Stadium following a disagreement with Ferguson in September.
The 26-year-old has been forced to watch on from the sidelines since Posh’s clash with Reading as David Cornell has managed to retain his place in the club’s starting eleven.
When you consider that Pym’s current contract is set to run until 2024, Peterborough should only think about selling him if they receive a sizeable offer from a potential suitor in January.
Posh could then use the money generated from Pym’s departure to bolster their squad next month.
Should Ferguson allow Idris Kanu to move on to pastures new?
Another player whose future at Peterborough is also relatively uncertain is Idris Kanu.
A report from Football Insider earlier this month revealed that Milton Keynes Dons, Salford City and Colchester United are all keeping tabs on the 22-year-old ahead of the upcoming window.

Kanu has only played five games in the Championship for Peterborough this season and thus may need to move on in order to keep his career on track.
Therefore, if Ferguson doesn’t believe Kanu is part of his long-term plans for the future, he should be looking to sell him in the coming weeks.
