Peterborough United goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik has moved on loan until the end of the season to League Two strugglers York City.

Olejnik has just returned to London Road from a three-month loan spell at League One side Scunthorpe. York boss Russ Wilcox was the manager who took Olejnik to Scunthorpe, but the 26-year-old hasn’t played first-team football since October 25.

Posh have reportedly agreed to contribute to Olejnik’s wages, while also agreeing not to recall him to the ABAX Stadium for the rest of this season.

It’s understood that two more League One appearances for Posh would trigger another £10,000 payment to his former club Torquay. He has made 88 Football League appearances for Posh and 196 appearances in total since moving to the club from Plainmoor in the summer of 2012.

Olejnik is out of contract at Posh at the end of this season and is expected to move away from the club permanently.

Posh are also expected to off-load million-pound striker Tyrone Barnett during the January transfer window. Central defender Shaun Brisley, who has also just returned from a loan spell at Scunthorpe, is expected to be made available for transfer if Posh are successful in their own attempt to sign a defender on loan.

Reports in Northern Ireland suggest Irish Premiership challengers Linfield are interested in veteran Posh midfielder Grant McCann.
