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. Want keeper McGee from POMPEY.

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.
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.
