Posh will get an immediate catch-up with Nichols as manager Grant McCann’s men travel to Rovers for their first away League One match of the season on August 12.

Nichols scored the winning goal for Posh at Rovers last season.

Posh have been linked with Dagenham & Redbridge striker Oliver Hawkins and New Saints forward Scott Quigley in recent days.
