Posh are thought to be in the market for a forward and Marquis played for Posh boss Darren Ferguson at Doncaster, but not at Championship level.

Marquis has managed just four League One goals in 17 appearances this season.

Former Posh youth team player Nicky Gyimah (18) has signed for Sunderland and will join the club’s under 23 squad.
