Batt set for Lions

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

POSH striker Shaun Batt is on the verge of a move into the Cham­pi­onship with Mill­wall.

The clubs have agreed a fee for the 23 year-old who spent the sec­ond half of last sea­son on loan at The New Den. Batt played 70 min­utes at Wem­b­ley as Mill­wall beat Swin­don in the League One play-off fi­nal over the week­end.

Posh man­ager Gary John­son said: “Barry Fry has done a deal that I’m very happy with. It’s a good move for Shaun and a good deal for the club.”

Batt is ex­pected to com­plete the trans­fer when he re­turns from hol­i­day later this week. Posh are also hop­ing to off­load un­wanted play­ers like Ben Wright, Ser­gio Tor­res, Liam Hatch, Ex­o­dus Geo­haghon, Scott Ren­dell and Rene Howe be­fore the first-team squad re­port for pre-sea­son train­ing on July 1.

John­son added: “I hope the play­ers and their agents are work­ing hard to find them­selves an­other club. I would hope that the play­ers in­volved want to play on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, some­thing they won’t be do­ing with us.”

Geo­haghon was again linked with a move to League Two side Crewe yes­ter­day. Posh di­rec­tor of foot­ball Fry con­firmed he had given Crewe per­mis­sion to talk to the player, but that he was un­aware whether or not any talks had taken place.
