Posh are seeking a left-sided defender and Ogbeta would certainly fit the club’s preference for young players with potential to improve.

Ogbeta is 20 and only joined Shrewsbury from Manchester City in January. He made his Shrews debut in a 2-0 win over Posh in January and went on to show impressive form for the rest of the season.

Posh were linked with Ogbeta in June when it was reported talks had broken down.

But today Posh director of football Barry Fry told the Peterborough Telegraph: ‘We are not signing him.’
