Peterborough United have made their first signing of transfer deadline day (January 31), but will it be their last?

There have been a few mixed signals coming from the club in the last few days regarding signings.

Only yesterday chairman Darragh MacAnthony stated Posh would not be making any new signings, before trumpeting the return of striker Craig Mackail-Smith on loan from Luton for the rest of the season.

Despite losing three of their last four matches, Posh remain just four points off the play-off places, ahead of Saturday’s League One trip to Port Vale (February 4).

Posh failed in a bid to sign a striker on loan on Friday (January 27) despite agreeing a deal with the player’s club. The player’s agent apparently scuppered the transfer.

They also pulled out of a bid to sign Port Vale midfielder Anthony Grant yesterday, although there were hints this morning that deal could be resurrected.

Posh could sell a prize asset with captain Chris Forrester still attracting plenty of interest from Championship clubs. Winger Marcus Maddison and teenage midfielder Leo Da Silva Lopes are others to have been the subject of transfer speculation.

MacAnthony returns to his Florida home on Wednesday (February 1).
