Posh star set to leave London Road for London Premier League club, Carlisle midfielder linked with move to London Road and other League One rumours involving Gwion Edwards, Jevani Brown, Ryan Broom and Steve Evans
Edwards has been linked with both clubs before as well as Manchester City, Chelsea, Aston Villa, Wolves Southampton and a trio of German clubs including Borussia Dortmund so who really knows?
Chelsea were thought to be the keenest last summer, but a lot has happened at Stamford Bridge since then!
The 20-year-old, who is currently on England duty at the Under 20 World Cup, is likely to be sold this summer and the Premier League is his likeliest destination.
Posh have also been linked by an unnamed ‘source’ with a move for Carlisle United midfielder Owen Moxon. He’s 25 though and might already be too old! Moxon is expected to start for Carlisle against Stockport County in the League Two play-off final at Wembley on Sunday.
