The Belgium U21 international spent time with League One side Walsall earlier in the season and signed a new two-year deal at the Britannia Stadium in May 2012.

Cuvelier, 20, has represented his country at all youth levels and played 22 times for the Saddlers this campaign, scoring three goals and adding to the experience gained from his previous loan period at the Banks's Stadium the season before.

Anderlecht-born Cuvelier started his career as an apprentice at Mouscron in his native country, before moving to Portsmouth under Harry Redknapp in 2009.

Redknapp soon departed for Tottenham, however, and while Cuvelier was linked with a switch to White Hart Lane too, he eventually chose Stoke City in July 2010 but has yet to make his first-team debut.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson said: 'He is a very good technical player, he can play anywhere in midfield, he is two-footed and I am pleased to have him here.

"He has been with Walsall this season and did very well and he has been on the radar. We thought we could perhaps do something for next season, but obviously it has been accelerated because I have injuries to Davide Petrucci and Alex Pritchard, so that has made my mind up.

"I have spoken to Tony Pulis and thank you to him for allowing us to get it done. He wanted to come here, he plays football the right way and I believe we will suit each other."

Cuvelier said: "It happened very quickly, but I am really pleased to be at a big club like Peterborough. I have been playing with Walsall and I felt the time was right to play in the Championship and I am really happy to be here."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
