POSH have had a bid ac­cepted for Shrews­bury de­fender Kelvin Lang­mead.

The 25 year-old will dis­cuss per­sonal terms when he re­turns from hol­i­day next week. The fee is be­lieved to be around the £50,000 mark.

Posh di­rec­tor of foot­ball Barry Fry said: “The man­ager iden­ti­fied Kelvin as a player he wanted a while ago, but we have been wait­ing for Shrews­bury to ap­point a man­ager be­fore mak­ing our bid.

“Their new man­ager Gra­ham Turner has ac­cepted our bid and we can talk to the player when he re­turns from his hol­i­day.”

Lang­mead has played over 250 games for Shrews­bury in five years at the club. He started his ca­reer as a striker at Pre­ston.

If he signs he will be the sec­ond player to move to Posh from Shrews­bury this sum­mer af­ter striker Dave Hib­bert.
