The 18-year-old, who has been training with Posh in recent weeks, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal at London Road.

Manager Darren Ferguson told the club's official website: "Charlie has got a lot of potential and we look forward to working with him and trying to develop that potential.

"He is a big lad, at 6ft 4in, and is someone we have been looking at in training."

Posh goalkeeping coach Jimmy Walker has also been impressed by the youngster.

He said: "The lad has got enormous potential and we hope he realises it with us. He has never had any full-time coaching, so we feel that working with him on a day to day basis will help him.

"He is one for the future. We have some excellent goalkeepers at the club."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
