Leverington are spot on
FOOTBALL: Leverington Sports Reserves beat Oundletown Reserves 4-3 on penalties in last night’s Peterborough League Divisionthree Play-off. The score was 2-2 after 90 minutes.
“He’s an exciting talent and we certainly have an interest in him. The boy is a very good player.
“He’s had injury problems, but that doesn’t concern me too much as he would cost us nothing and we would only sign him subject to him passing a medical.”
Swanson was called up to a Scottish senior squad in October 2011, but was forced to pull out because of injury. He helped Dundee United win the Scottish FA Cup in 2010, but played just 16 matches last season.
Hibs, the team Swanson supports, are also interested in the midfield playmaker, but the player has his heart set on a move to English football.
Swanson said: “It might sound strange as Hibs are my team, but my preferred option right now is to head to England.
“I’ve a few irons in the fire and I’m just hoping something comes off as I’m desperate for a change of scenery.”
Ferguson did confirm a new signing yesterday with the appointment of Chris Burton as club physio. The first team worked with temporary physios towards the end of last season after Peter Corder left London Road.
Burton has previously worked for Hull and Barnsley.
Ferguson reported that the future of goalkeeper Paul Jones is still up in the air. Jones is currently on holiday so no further talks have yet been scheduled.
Posh have been linked with a move for Manchester United keeper Ben Amos and another former United number one Tom Heaton is also believed to be on the club’s ra- dar. Heaton has just been released by Cardiff City, the probable destination of former Posh keeper Joe Lewis.
Ferguson insisted he knew nothing about rumours linking transfer-listed striker Nicky Ajose with a move to League Two champions Swindon, but revealed there was interest from ‘The Robins’ last season.
DARREN Ferguson has described Posh transfer target Danny Swanson as an ‘exciting talent’.
The Posh boss confirmed yesterday’s Evening Telegraph exclusive about the 25 year-old midfielder coming to London Road for transfer talks.
Swanson is expected to leave Scottish Premier League side Dundee United after allowing his contract to expire. He will be a free agent and he fancies a move into English football.
Ferguson said: “Danny is coming down for talks and I’m looking forward to meeting him. I’ve spoken to a lot of people about him and they all say good things.
‘A VERY GOOD PLAYER’: Swanson.
