Peterborough United have agreed a deal to sign goalkeeper David Cornell, a report from The East Anglian Daily Times has revealed.
Cornell is currently a free agent, having had his contract with League One side Ipswich Town terminated earlier this summer.
The goalkeeper had only joined Ipswich from Northampton ahead of the 2020/21 season, and made 15 appearances in all competitions for the Tractor Boys during his one campaign at Portman Road.
Now it seems as though Cornell is set to make the step up to the Championship for the coming campaign.
According to this latest update, Peterborough, who are preparing to step up to the second-tier following their promotion last season, are set to confirm the signing of the 30-year-old, who could become Posh’s first recruit of the summer transfer window.
Did these 20 midfielders ever score a goal for Ipswich?
While with Peterborough, Cornell looks set to compete for the number one spot between the posts with Christy Pym, who signed a new contract at London Road earlier this summer.
This does look as though it could be a decent signing for Peterborough.
Posh were short on some cover and competition for Pym heading into this summer, so that is something they did seem to need to address in the market.
They do now seem to have done that with the apparently imminent signing of Cornell, who has plenty of useful experience that he can offer at London Road.
The fact he is available on a free transfer is also helpful for Peterborough here, since it leaves them with more funds free and available for other business they will probably need to do this summer.
