Coventry City are lining up a swoop for Peterborough United keeper Aaron Chapman, as reported by Peterborough Today.
The 28-year-old keeper is reportedly being eyed as a replacement for Lee Burge, their current number one who is set to leave at the end of his contract.
Chapman only joined Posh in the summer of 2018, coming from Accrington Stanley after they won the League One title. He’s made 32 league starts for them, but is seen as surplus to requirements as new manager Darren Ferguson builds his own squad.
Mark Robins is moving quickly in the transfer market, he’s already signed defender Kyle McFadzean from Burton Albion and now wants to ensure he’s got a keeper in place before the summer draws in.
Chapman began his career with Belper Town before securing a move to Chesterfield, but he couldn’t break through with the Spireites.
He later joined Stanley where he made 59 starts in two years before his switch to London Road last summer.
Chapman had a decent season for Posh, but they’ve transfer listed him anyway which is a surprise. It looks as though manager Darren Ferguson wants to clear out some of the Steve Evans recruits, with several of the brash Scot’s signings set to leave.
A move to Coventry would seem a good fit, Chapman has proved himself in League One and would certainly be adequate for a top six push.
