Luke James in action for Posh.

The 22-year-old will go down as an expensive Posh flop. He moved to the ABAX Stadium from Hartlepool for £500k in August 2014, but scored just two goals for the club in 34 appearances (13 as a substitute).

James hasn’t played for Posh since a 1-1 home draw with Crewe in April, 2015.

He has spent the last two seasons on loan at Bradford City, Hartlepool and Bristol Rovers.
