Miller will join a club managed by Wansford-based Steve Evans and who are challenging strongly for promotion from League Two.

Posh agreed a fee with three clubs today - one of the others was believed to be League Two strugglers Chesterfield - for Miller, but Posh appear to have allowed their first summer signing to leave on loan instead.

It was previously thought Miller wanted to move south of Peterborough.

Miller was a prime Posh target in the summer when he moved from Dover, but he has failed to score a goal for the club.

Mansfield boss Evanstold the Stags’ official website: “I am delighted that we have signed Ricky. The lad has had his problems, but you are very fortunate in life if you never have any. He is very focused on his football and so credit to Peterborough United and the lad.

Omar Bogle has signed for Posh on loan.

“We, amongst 15 other clubs, tried to sign Ricky last summer but he chose Peterborough and we respected that decision.

“I’ve made it clear that there are no guarantees to play here. Like all the others, he will compete for a place in the team. I spoke to players at Dover Athletic and Peterborough United and they love the lad. In turn he will get that love here.”

Posh also let winger Jordan Nicholson join League Two strugglers Barnet tonight. He will link up again with former boss Graham Westley, the man who signed him for Posh.

Posh look to have held on to star men Jack Marriott and Marcus Maddison despite rumours of late interest in the former from Premier League Crystal Palace. Posh had reportedly lined up Cardiff City’s former Wigan and Grimsby striker Omar Bogle as Palace considered a £6 million bid for Marriott.

Notts County chairman Alan Hardy even tweeted he understood Posh were set to sign Bogle.
