Young Peterborough United goalkeeper Dion-Curtis Henry is poised for a shock move into the Premier League.
Henry only made his Posh debut on Saturday (October 3) as a first-half substitute for injury victim Ben Alnwick in the 5-3 League One win over Millwall at the ABAX Stadium.
But a goalkeeper who only celebrated his 18th birthday last month has been training with a Premier League team this week. It’s believed to be Leicester City.
Posh manager Graham Westley told the Peterborough Telegraph: “There is cash on the table for Dion from a Premier League club. There has been interest in him from more than one Premier League club and he has been training elsewhere this week.
“I have one or two things on the go this week regarding goalkeepers. This is more to do with Dion’s possible departure than it is to do with Ben’s injury.”
Henry spent time at an England training camp earlier this year. Posh sold goalkeeper Luke Steele to Manchester United for £500,000 in 2002 after just two first-team appearances.
Alnwick (back), Chris Forrester (thigh). Michael Bostwick (knee) and Marcus Maddison (ankle) have not trained this week because of niggles. None have been ruled out of the League One trip to Swindon on Saturday (October 10).
Colchester ‘keeper Chris Lewington is a possible Posh target.
