Peterborough United winger Marcus Maddison has sent a message to League One rivals Sunderland after they booked their place at Wembley for the Checkatrade trophy final.
Jack Ross’ side secured their spot after a comfortable 2-0 win against Bristol Rovers and will now face Portsmouth in the final.
Alongside a photo of Sky’s broadcast, Maddison wrote on his Instagram story: “Sunderland off to Wembley. Hope they win it.”
The winger, who is from the North East, has been linked with a move to the Stadium of Light in the past but remains a key part of Darren Ferguson’s Posh squad for the time being.
The Black Cats currently sit in third place in the Championship table, two points outside the top-two and with a game in hand on second-placed Barnsley.
This weekend sees them come up against Wycombe Wanderers, a club against whom Maddison scored twice and assisted two more last weekend.
The 25-year-old has scored five and assisted 20 more in another impressive season in the third-tier.
Maddison has never made any secret of his admiration for Sunderland and it would be no surprise to see him move there.
Is this him angling for a move? I don’t think so.
The winger seems settled in Peterborough having recently opened his own tattoo parlour, although you can never rule it out.
