Michael Bostwick has today (March 10) signed a new three-year contract at Peterborough United.

The 26 year-old put pen to paper on a contract extension this morning. Bostwick has been outstanding in a central midfield role since Posh axed manager Darren Ferguson at the end of last month.

Bostwick moved to Posh from Stevenage in a reported £800,000 deal in July 2012.

Posh caretaker-manager Dave Robertson said: “It is a massive signing for the football club. He is a fantastic player and a fantastic leader in the dressing room.”

Bostwick added: “I love playing for this football club and I am delighted that everything is sorted out with regards to my future. I have really enjoyed my time here and I didn’t want to be going anywhere else. I am really enjoying my football and I am excited about what lies ahead.”

Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony stated: “Michael has been immense in these last few games for us. It (the new contract) has been something that has been in the pipeline since the summer, but Dave Robertson, Aaron Mclean and Grant McCann wanted to get this done this week and I was happy to get everything done for them.”

Contract extensions and the announcement of professional deals for four youth team players in Jack Friend, Harry Anderson, Tobi Adebayo-Rowling and Jonny Edwards suggest that the current management team is to remain in place for now.
