Peterborough United are set to offer a contract to Austrian midfielder Robert Pervan after a trial at London Road.

The 18-year-old is little-known outside of his native country but recently played in a pre-season friendly against Manchester United, managed by Posh boss Darren Ferguson's father Sir Alex.

"I like him, he's a good player - technically he's very good," Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

"Hopefully there'll be some good news about that before the end of the week."
