Manchester United defender James Chester is pleased with his loan move to Peterborough United.

"The move came about really quickly," says Chester, on Peterborough's official site.

"I was training with United on Sunday and when I got home I heard from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who told me to expect a call from the boss at Old Trafford. Sir Alex said he wanted me to go on loan to Peterborough, then Darren Ferguson rang me.

"I am really excited, I have been wanting to go out on loan for a little while now and this is a good move for me because I want matches under my belt and first team experience.

"It has been an exciting time for me of late, I have been on the fringes of the first team at United for a little while and that has been a good experience for me. I have watched closely some of the best defenders in the world at Old Trafford in Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic. I like to put a tackle in and always give my best."
