GABY Zakuani’s spec­tac­u­lar Posh form could earn him an im­proved London Road con­tract.

The cen­tre-half won four pres­ti­gious player-of-the-year polls at the end of the 2011-12 Cham­pi­onship cam­paign de­spite reg­u­lar pre-match painkilling in­jec­tions.

Zakuani be­lieves he is now play­ing at his peak mean­ing Posh will get the best days of his ca­reer.

“I’m very set­tled here,” Zakuani ad­mit­ted. “I think I’m play­ing at my level. I’m re­spected and well-re­garded at the club.

“I’ve had the big money move in the past so I’m happy to stay here. The gaffer and the chair­man have said they will talk about an­other con­tract, but not be­fore we go to Por­tu­gal for pre­sea­son train­ing.

“I think I’m at my peak now. I’d be very happy if I main­tain the form I showed this sea­son.

“As a team we were happy with what we achieve, but we ex­pect to do even bet­ter next sea­son.”

Zakuani has two years re­main­ing on his cur­rent Posh con­tract. Posh signed him for a re­ported £300,000 from Ful­ham in Septem­ber 2008 - Ful­ham had paid Ley­ton Ori­ent £1 mil­lion for him two years ear­lier.

AT HIS PEAK: Gaby Zakuani.
