Posh keen on Burge

Peterborough are understood to be considering a late bid for Port Vale midfielder Ryan Burge.

The 24-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer, has been a key player for Vale as they have taken League Two by storm this season, making 28 appearances and scoring three goals.

Posh, who look set to lose George Boyd to Crystal Palace, may see Burge as an ideal replacement and could be tempted to make a bid before the transfer window shuts on Thursday night.

Darren Ferguson's side have also been linked with Vale striker Tom Pope, who has scored 25 goals this season.
