Peterborough United will be looking to make a positive start to life back in the Championship, after winning promotion from League One last term.
Posh finished second in the third tier standings last season, and will be keen to get off to a winning start in the 2021/22 league campaign.
They’re set to take on Luton Town in their season opener on Saturday 7th August, in what is likely to be a tricky test for Darren Ferguson’s side at Kenilworth Road.
The summer transfer window is often known for being somewhat hectic, and there are plenty of free-agents looking for new clubs ahead of the upcoming campaign.
With Peterborough United’s budget unlikely to be sizeable compared to some of the other teams in the Championship, they could be tempted to dip into the free-agent market before the new league campaign gets underway.
We take a look at TWO free-agents who should be on Peterborough United’s transfer radar in the near future.
Find out who they are, below….
The defender is a free-agent as his spell with Sheffield Wednesday reached a conclusion in the summer, after they were relegated from the Championship.
Lees has a considerable amount of experience in the second-tier, and his leadership qualities could certainly come in useful for Darren Ferguson’s side moving forwards.
Additional strength in depth is always welcome as well, as some might argue that at the age of 30, Leeds might not be a regular starter for Posh.
Can you score full marks in this quiz about some of Peterborough United's biggest moments?
The winger caught the eye with a number of impressive performances for Cardiff City earlier in his career, and also has experience of playing in the Premier League during the 2018/19 season whilst with the Bluebirds.
He netted 14 goals in 92 appearances for Cardiff, before his contract was terminated after a breach of contract in September 2020.
Mendez-Laing then returned to the Championship with Middlesbrough in February 2021, as he signed for Neil Warnock’s side on a short-term deal.
He went on to make nine appearances for Middlesbrough, before departing when his contract wasn’t renewed at the end of the 2020/21 season.
Mendez-Laing’s experience at this level could be useful, and Peterborough United could benefit from adding a player of his quality to their side, especially if he can get back to his best.
