Grant McCann: New Peterborough player-coach

The 33-year-old midfielder, made available for transfer last summer, saw his contract expire at London Road at the end of June but he will remain at the club as they once again aim to return to the Championship following relegation.

McCann made a total of 43 appearances last term, scoring eight goals, but could not prevent Posh from slipping back into League One.

And the experienced Northern Ireland international will also now look to pass on some of his knowledge to the club's youngsters as he combines his playing role with coaching duties.

McCann tweeted: "Delighted to announce I have signed a 2 year player coach role at Peterborough Utd."

Chairman Darragh MacAnthony also spoke of his joy at McCann's new deal.

"Delighted to announce Grant has now signed a 2 year deal. Fantastic news for the club!," he added on twitter.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
