Peterborough United set to launch bid for experienced centre-back

Published

Peterborough United are apparently preparing a move for Bolton Wanderer’s out-of-contract centre-back Mark Beevers, according to Football Insider

The 29-year-old will become a free-agent when his deal expires at the University of Bolton Stadium in order to save on fees after the club were placed into administration.

Beevers would arrive with over 450 career appearances to his name and add some much-needed experience to a Peterborough side who will be aiming for promotion next season.

He made 32 Championship appearances last season, scoring three goals, as the Trotters were relegated from the second-tier, just two seasons after they were promoted from League One.

But League One is not a new territory for Beevers having turned out more than 130 times in the third-tier.

The Posh, on the other hand, fell just one point shy of a place in the play-offs, missing out to Grant McCann’s Doncaster Rovers side.

With first-choice centre-back Ryan Tafazolli leaving the club when his contract expires, a new centre-back will be one of his priorities.

The verdict 

This would be a very smart signing from Peterborough.

Beevers has a wealth of experience at League One and has even shown he can cut in the Championship so getting him for nothing would be too good to resist.
