POSH cen­tre-back Ryan Ben­nett and on-loan mid­fielder Ryan Tun­ni­cliffe are be­lieved to have been in­cluded on a lengthy list of pos­si­bles for the Great Bri­tain Olympic foot­ball team.

Team coach Stu­art Pearce has been tasked with com­pil­ing a com- pe­t­i­tive squad of mainly Un­der 23 play­ers from the four home na­tions.

Pearce has picked Ben­nett for Eng­land Un­der 21s this sea­son, while Manch­ester United’stun­ni­cliffe is highly re­garded within the game.

Pearce can also se­lect three over­age play­ers.

Chair­man Dar­ragh Ma­can­thony re­vealed on twit­ter that two Posh play­ers had re­ceived let­ters from Pearce, but the club have so far de­clined to name them.
