BREAKING NEWS: Players chasing new contracts as Henry heads for Palace
Young Peterborough United goalkeeper Dion-Curtis Henry has been invited on a two-week trial at Crystal Palace.
Henry (19) is currently third-choice ‘keeper at Posh behind on-loan Spurs player Luke McGee and veteran Mark Tyler.
Henry graduated from the Posh Academy, but has made just one substitute appearance for the first team, in a 5-3 win over Millwall in October 2015.
The teenager previously spent time on trial at Leicester City. He spent most of the first half of this season on loan to National North League side Boston United.
Henry is out of contract at the ABAX Stadium at the end of this season and no new deal has yet been offered, even though there is no chance of McGee returning to the club next season.
Tyler is also out of contract. Negotiations are currently ongoing with a player who made his 496th appearance for the club last Saturday (March 18). It’s understood Tyler is keen on playing again next season when he will be 40.
Other Posh players out of contract at the end of this season include forward Paul Taylor and midfielder Harry Anderson.
Posh have a two-year option on Anderson (20) which they are expected to trigger, but Taylor might struggle to have his one-year deal extended, even though manager Grant McCann remains a big fan.
No definite decisions on player contracts are expected until the end of the current campaign.
