Nathaniel Mendez-Laing scores a superb goal for Posh at Crystal Palace on the final day of the 2012-13 season.

Will Peterborough United sign any of these available players as they plot to thrive rather than just survive in the Championship?

Peterborough United have held talks with several players about a move to the Weston Homes Stadium.

No names have been mentioned, but it’s known that Posh want players with Championship experience to help them survive in the second tier next season.

Posh co-owner Darragh MacAnthony said: “I’ve had several chats with agents and players who are out of contract and it’s remarkable that some still expect wages in the region of £50k a week.

“Obviously they won’t be getting that here.

“I have lists of players who have become available since the end of last season. There aren’t many surprise names on them.

“Trust me, myself, Barry Fry and Darren Ferguson are working hard on them.”

MacAnthony believes Posh need eight new players to build a squad able to compete at Championship level. He says six bids have already been made.

“We want to thrive in the Championship,” MacAnthony added. “We’re not going up there just to try and survive.”

It’s thought Posh are unlikely to sign anyone this month to avoid paying June wages, but MacAnthony and Ferguson would doubtless like newcomers to be on the plane to Portugal for the pre-season training camp in July.
