Posh are in the market for midfield options for next season, given the fact that Jorge Grant has been placed on the transfer list, and has already attracted two bids and Oliver Norburn’s long-term injury and desire to leave the club.

The midfield ranks have already been boosted by the arrival of 26-year-old Ben Thompson on a free transfer and Posh are also on the verge of announcing two new goalkeepers.

The Sun has now suggested that Posh are interested in 21-year-old Leyton Orient midfielder Hector Kyprianou.
