Peterborough United are interested in signing Queens Park Rangers midfielder Michael Doughty.

The Peterborough Telegraph reports that Posh manager Grant McCann is interested in securing the signature of the man who has spent time on loan at recently relegated Swindon Town in the last two seasons.

Speaking to the Peterborough Telegraph, Peterborough United director of football Barry Fry admitted that it would be a difficult signing to make.

He said: “It could be a tough one to pull off. He’s on good money at QPR.”

Doughty has spent the last few seasons on loan at Sky Bet League One side Swindon Town, after failing to impress at Queens Park Rangers.

In just six years, the Welshman has appeared just six times for the London club.

He is yet to receive a full cap for his native Wales, but has appeared for them at youth level.

He played twice for Wales U19s in 2010, before making just one appearance in the U21 squad in 2012.

Doughty will be well known to Peterborough United fans. In the 2015/16 season, the midfielder scored the winning goal as Swindon came from behind to win 2-1 at the ABAX stadium.

He also scored twice for the Robins at the ABAX Stadium this season, as the two sides played out a 2-2 draw, live in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
