Hearts in pole position to clinch deal for Peterborough United midfielder

Published

on

Hearts are currently leading the race to sign Jorge Grant from Peterborough United, according to The Telegraph journalist Mike McGrath.

A report from Football Scotland earlier this month revealed that the Jambos were interested in making a move for the Posh midfielder.

It is understood that Hearts are hoping that their involvement in the Europa League next season will play a role in helping to convince Grant to make the switch to Tynecastle.

As per the Edinburgh News, Peterborough are looking to secure a £750,000 fee for Grant this summer.

Hearts are not believed to be willing to match this valuation and thus will need to engage in some negotiations with Posh.

Grant is currently surplus to requirements at the Weston Homes Stadium as Peterborough revealed last month that they are open to offers for the midfielder.

Signed by Posh last year following a spell at Lincoln City, Grant would have been hoping to deliver the goods on a consistent basis in the Championship.

However, the midfielder struggled to make an impact at this level as he only provided five direct goal contributions in 26 league appearances.

Relegated to League One earlier this year, Posh will be determined to make a positive start to the 2022/23 campaign under the guidance of manager Grant McCann.

The Verdict

If this latest update regarding Hearts’ pursuit turns out to be correct, it will be intriguing to see whether they can reach an agreement with Peterborough over a move for Grant.

Having yet to feature in the Scottish Premiership during his career, it could take the 27-year-old some time to adapt to life in this particular division if he does join the Jambos.

For Peterborough’s sake, they will be determined to secure a reasonable fee for Grant this summer as his current deal at the club is not set to expire until 2024.

Posh could potentially bolster their squad by using the money generated from Grant’s sale.

Providing that McCann is able to nail his transfer recruitment, Peterborough may end up achieving a great deal of success in the third-tier later this year.
