Peterborough to sign Blackpool defender Colin Daniel

Peterborough United have strengthened their squad ahead of the new season by bringing in defender Colin Daniel from fellow League One side Blackpool.

Daniel is out of contract at Blackpool after failing to successfully negotiate new terms and will move to London Road on a free transfer on July 1st.

The 30-year-old left back has been with Blackpool for the past two years after joining from Port Vale in 2016. Daniel has made 78 appearances for the Seasiders.

Peterborough manager Steve Evans told the club’s official website, “I am delighted that another part of the recruitment process has come together with the signing of Colin Daniel from Blackpool. Colin has had another outstanding season and we have had to be patient as the kid has taken, quite rightly in my opinion, time to speak to a number of clubs that I would see competing at the top end of League One next season.

“We have taken our time, we have been patient but we are delighted with the signing. Colin is comfortable in any position on the left hand side of the pitch, from left-back to the left side of midfield or even further forward, but I will make it absolutely clear we have signed him to be competing as either a left full-back or a wing back. I am pleased he has chosen us over a number of other clubs.”
