Peterborough United rumours.
Peterborough United will be over the moon with the club’s re-signing of Jack Marriott, who made a huge impact during his single season with Posh.
The striker left in 2018 to join Derby County in the Championship, but after failing to continue his form in the Midlands, Marriott has now rejoined Darren Ferguson’s side following their promotion.
Peterborough also snapped up Lincoln City’s Jorge Grant – who was their top scorer last season – as well as Josh Knight from Leicester City.
