Lincolnshire Live reports that Lincoln City midfielder Alex Woodyard is set to complete a summer move to Peterborough United. The Sky Bet League One club are believed to have met the release clause in Woodyard’s contract, meaning he would be free to discuss a move elsewhere.
Several clubs in the division have expressed a desire to sign the highly-rated Woodyard. Luton Town tried to snap up the player in the previous January transfer window, but the player decided against this. He is under contract at Sincil Bank until the end of the upcoming season.
This would come as a huge blow to Danny Cowley, who has managed the 25-year-old at Concord Rangers and Braintree Town as well. Nevertheless, the Imps are set to make a huge profit on a player they snapped up on a free transfer shortly after Cowley was appointed to the job a few seasons ago.
There is certainly no pressure from the Lincoln hierarchy to move any players on. Any fee they do receive is likely to be pumped into the budget to boost their squad. Bruno Andrade so far is their only signing, joining from Boreham Wood, who suffered defeat to Tranmere Rovers in the Vanarama Promotion Final recently.
Therefore, it looks as though Steve Evans has won the race for an in-demand performer, that has made huge progress since making the step up into the EFL for the first job. He’ll now test himself in another league above, but firstly, he’ll look to cement a spot in Evans’ side during pre-season.
