Peterborough United weighing up swoop for Portsmouth man



Sky Bet League One side Peterborough United are interested in signing Portsmouth goalkeeper Luke McGee in the summer, according to reports from journalist Alan Nixon.

The 23-year old is no stranger to the Posh faithful, having made 45 appearances for the club in the 2016/17 campaign after signing on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.

The shot-stopper then signed for Portsmouth on a permanent deal from the North London club, making 50 appearances in Kenny Jackett’s first season in charge at Fratton Park.

But McGee has endured a difficult season this time around in terms of appearances, falling out of favour behind Craig McGillivray at Fratton Park and failing to make a single league appearances for Pompey this term.

And now, Nixon claims that Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough are interested in signing McGee for good, who could be available at a cut-price due to his lack of game-time at Fratton Park.

Peterborough missed out on a League One play-off spot this season, losing out to Doncaster Rovers on the final day of the campaign, with Ferguson’s side looking to go one step further next year.

The Verdict

I think McGee would be a very good signing for Peterborough, having established himself as a fans’ favourite during his first spell at London Road.

He is a very good goalkeeper on his day, and has been unlucky to find himself out of favour at Pompey behind McGillivray, despite having a decent season in the 2017/18 campaign.

If Peterborough can get him on a cheap, then it’s a win-win for both parties.
