The unnamed player was not the left-sided central defender expected to sign for the club when he returns from holiday later this week.

McCann’s first signing was 21-year-old right-back Hayden White who was a free agent after his contract at Bolton Wanderers expired.

Posh are also expected to reveal the name of the man who will become McCann’s first-team coach this week.
