The 20 year-old’s current Posh deal expires at the end of this season. He hasn’t actually made a Posh appearance since a 1-1 draw at Port Vale in October, 2015 when he appeared as a second-half substitute.

But a successful four-month loan spell at National League leaders Lincoln City at the start of the current season has instilled confidence in young Anderson.

He’s not even become downcast at a knee ligament injury which surfaced as soon as he returned from Sincil Bank in December.

Harry Anderson is trying to secure a new Posh contract.

Anderson is fit now. He was an unused substitute at Bradford City last weekend and he’s determined to state a case for a new contract.

“I definitely came back from Lincoln a better player,” Anderson stated. “It was a blow to get an injury as soon as I returned, but I’m fit now and determined to win another contract.

“Mine runs out at the end of this season, but I want to stay. I will get my head down to stay in the squad and hopefully I will get an opportunity on the pitch.

“It was a great experience at Lincoln. Playing week in, week out was good for me. I learnt a lot there.

“The manager has spoken about me playing right-back for Peterborough. I’m sure I could do that, but I prefer to play as a winger or a wing-back.

“Getting in to the matchday squad was big for me. It was a long time coming. Now I’m focused on getting into the side.”
