'Anthony has been given permission to speak to a club without a fee yet being agreed.'

Grant made 48 appearances for the Posh last season, helping them to a ninth-place finish in League One.

He graduated through Chelsea's academy in 2004 and made a solitary appearance for the Premier League outfit in a 3-1 win over Manchester United in April 2005.

Grant has also represented Southend United, Stevenage, Crewe and Port Vale during his career.

He has a year left on his Peterborough contract after moving to London Road for a six-figure fee in January 2017.
