Posh agreed a fee to buy Szmodics from Colchester United in the summer, but the player chose to move to the Championship. The 24 year-old has made just four appearances (two starts) for City without scoring.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson said: “Sammie is a very good player. He can play anywhere in the middle of the park in the attacking areas, but he is predominantly one that can play centrally. I am really looking forward to working with him. He is one that I have liked for a long time.”

Szmodics made 162 appearances for Colchester, scoring 38 goals.
