Manchester United midfielder Davide Petrucci is excited about his loan move to Peterborough United.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson has already indicated that the midfielder will stay beyond the initial agreement if it suits all parties with Scott Wootton signing up until the end of the season, also on a temporary basis.

"It was actually quite a while ago [when I knew of the interest]," the Italian told Posh Player. "Obviously, I have been playing for the Reserves recently but wanted a new step forward and a step up so I'm happy to come here.

"I want to learn from the more experienced players. I'm sure if I play, I can learn something from them and just help the team. Hopefully, they can help me too and, together, we can achieve something important."
