Peterborough keen to extend Petrucci’s loan deal from Man Utd

Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson will look to extend Davide Petrucci's month long loan from Manchester United.

Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson will look to extend Davide Petrucci's month long loan from Manchester United.

The Championship boss signed defender Scott Wootton from United on the same day on a deal until the end of the season and hopes to keep Petrucci at London Road for the same length of time.

"He is, by definition of where he came from, a very good footballer and he loves being at this club," said Ferguson.

"We only have him for a month at first, but I will definitely try and extend the loan."

Ferguson added: "We have brought Davide Petrucci here to play. He got very frustrated with himself in the second-half (against Hull) which is why I took him off, but we have to bear in mind that he has never been out on loan before."
