Petrucci has started both Posh's Championship fixtures since joining the club on a month-long deal on January 9.

Ferguson signed defender Scott Wootton from United on the same day on a deal until the end of the season and hopes to keep Petrucci at London Road for the same length of time.

"He is, by definition of where he came from, a very good footballer and he loves being at this club," said Ferguson after his side's 1-1 home draw against Hull on Saturday.

"We only have him for a month at first, but I will definitely try and extend the loan."

Ferguson added: "We have brought Davide Petrucci here to play. He got very frustrated with himself in the second-half (against Hull) which is why I took him off, but we have to bear in mind that he has never been out on loan before."

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
