The 21 year-old moved to London Road from National League Eastleigh last summer for a six-figure fee, but started just three Championship matches before he was sent on loan to League Two promotion-chasers Swindon Town.

Tomlinson made a great impact in Wiltshire before picking up an injury and was this week rewarded with an EFL young player of the year award.

“Joe is everything you want in a modern full-back/wing-back,” Posh chief Darragh MacAnthony stated on his Hard Truth podcast. “That’s one position we do not have to worry about next season. It was £100k well spent and Grant McCann will love him. He’s been protected from this season, but we expect him to go well next year. He’s a lovely lad as well.”

Tomlinson is currently recovering from a groin injury.
