DEON IS THE REAL DEAL
Posh boss Grant McCann insists 17 year-old striker Deon Moore is the real deal.
Moore has burst from the youth team ranks to challenge for aplace in the Posh starting line-up.
And McCann insists Moore is there on merit. He’d happily throw him into the League One match against Port Vale at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday.
Moore has made one firstteam appearance so far, as a substitute in the 6-1 home defeat at the hands of Norwich Under 23s in the Check a trade Trophy.
“Deon deserves to be in the first-team squad,” McCann stated. “I don’t look at his age, I look at his ability. Heis a very gifted striker.
“He’s a man in my eyes anyway. He’s strong, quick, technically good and he can run in behind defenders.
“I like him a lot and I wouldn’t hesitate to play him in a League One match.
“Posh fans saw a glimpse of him in the Norwich game, but that’s all it was. They will love him.
“Leo Da Silva Lopes has shown that 17 year-olds can thrive in League One. Deon will be the same.”
Grant McCann is a big fan of 17 year-old striker Deon Moore.
