Frecklington has made 16 appearances for the Millers, scoring four goals, since arriving on loan in October and the two clubs are currently thrashing out a permanent deal for the 27-year-old.

"The chairman (Tony Stewart) and (Peterborough director of football) Barry Fry are two of the best negotiators you could wish to meet," manager Steve Evans told the club's official website.

"Approaching Christmas, one day I was confident, the next not so much, but now I think things are looking good."

"It's not (done). There's terms to be agreed by Lee once the fee is set in stone, but it's not right to do that until the terms with the club are sealed."

Evans added: "He's been down in recent weeks, his performances haven't quite been there, but he's a young lad pondering his future and I love him to bits so we'll get him back on top of his game."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
