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."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
