The 25-year-old, who has overcome illness issues which threatened to end his career, is said to have undergone a medical with the Posh.

Meanwhile, Peterborough are also being Huddersfield defender Romoney Crichlow, as he leaves the Terriers.

The 24-year-old, who spent the past season with Bradford, is a free agent this summer.

Bristol Rovers are on the trail of Plymouth defender James Wilson, according to reports.

The defender was in talks with the League One title winners over a new deal, but the Pilgrims have now pulled that offer with a lack of progress being made.

Dan Scarr, Ryan Hardle and Jordan Houghton all found common ground over new terns, but the 34-year-old has been unable to do so.

As a result, Joey Barton is looking to pounce - say Bristol Live.

Pressley on Tykes’ mind

Barnsley are on the trail of striker Aaron Pressley.

And Wycombe are rivalling the League One play-off finalists for the signature of the 6ft 4in striker.

Pressley spent last season on loan at Accrington - scoring eight goals in 27 appearances at the Crown Ground.

Now the Tykes are said to be ready to move for the Brentford man - with the Chairboys, Cheltenham, Cambridge, Sutton and Stockport all keen, according to Football Insider.

Jon done for Bolton

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson has signed a new deal at Bolton.

The 31-year-old scored eight goals in 27 outings, before his season was ended by an ankle injury against Pompey in January.

But Ian Evatt has tied down the former Millwall to a new one-year deal.
