FUL­HAM full-back Matthew Briggs has joined Peter­bor­ough for a month af­ter ask­ing Martin Jol for a move.

The 20-year-old could ex­tend his deal at London Road if he gets the first-team foot­ball he wanted un­der Cot­tagers boss Jol.

“I want to get games un­der my belt and more ex­pe­ri­ence so it’s a good idea to come to Peter­bor­ough,” he said.

“It’s a month to start with, then it could be ex­tended.”

Briggs, an Eng­land U21 in­ter­na­tional, was in the team for Europa League games early in the sea­son but has only started one Premier League match.

He added: “I kept telling Martin Jol ev­ery day I needed to play games as I was on the bench all the time.”
