Posh will have 17 current squad players under contract in the summer. Full-back Darren Lyon and centre-back Ryan Tafazolli are out of contract in June and are expected to leave. Here is the Peterborough Telegraph verdict on who should stay and who should go.

A goalkeeper this tall should be more dominant in his own penalty area. Leave
There is potential there. On balance I'd let him go, but if he stays it can only be as a back-up. Leave

A relative disappointment considering who else was chasing him in the summer (Sunderland, Aberdeen), but he is still a decent right-back who can also play as a centre-back. Remain
A forgotten full-back who needs to go for the sake of his own career. Leave
It's assumed Ferguson will want his centre-backs to be comfortable on the ball which means his chances will be limited. Leave
He's never been able to hold a place down so might be best to cash in. Leave
The skipper is a destroyer rather than a playmaker and that might not be what Ferguson wants, although MacAnthony revealed the Posh boss tried to take Woodyard to Doncaster once. Leave
He has more passing ability than most midfielders in the current squad. Remain
His style is more suited to Lincoln than Ferguson so let them have him if they want him. Leave
He's had a season disrupted by injury and illness. He deserves another chance. Remain
One of the success stories of the season. If Ferguson can get him playing more positively he could be a star performer, as a winger rather than a defender. Remain
If Posh can keep him for another season it's a no-brainer. The most creative player in the squad by some distance. Remain
The flying winger can frustrate, but his first Posh season has been a good one. He's quick, he's tricky and he can score goals. No wonder Ferguson likes him. Remain
I'm not sure the big striker is perfect fit for a Fergie team, but he is still young and he is likely to improve with better coaching, His overall scoring record is impressive. Remain
His form has tailed off, but he would benefit from a spell of calm management/coaching. If he was a yard quicker he would not be far off Jack Marriott standards, but worth persevering with. Remain
I can't yet see him breaking into a League One starting line-up. If he stays he will be sent on loan. Leave
Not made a single Football League appearance for Posh since his arrival last summer. Leave
