Danny Lloyd has signed for Peterborough United on a three year deal with the League 1 club claiming to have fought off a number of clubs for the former Fylde man’s signature.
‘The Posh’ have a history of bringing players up through non-league and manager Grant McCann fought hard to bring the 25-year-old to London Road.
‘I am delighted to sign Danny, he adds to the attacking threat. He has scored a lot of goals and created goals too’, he told Peterborough’s official website earlier this week.
‘He likes to get forward at every opportunity and I am looking forward to working with him’.
Lloyd, who promised goals last summer when he joined County, said the decision was an easy one for him.
‘As soon as I heard about the interest from Peterborough, I wanted to sign’, he revealed to his new club yesterday.
‘If I am honest, I wish pre-season was starting tomorrow because I am eager to get going. This is an opportunity for me and I am going to work extremely hard from day one’.
The striker was out of contract at Edgeley Park and unfortunately for County, because Lloyd was not under 24 years of age, the club get no compensation for his services and he moves to Cambridgeshire without afflicting his new side with a fee.
We’d like to wish Danny Lloyd all the best for next season, it’s clear that it was his dream to move into professional football and the stability of a three year contract at a league 1 club is something that the majority of professionals outside the top two tiers would jump at.
Good luck Danny!
