Cardiff City playmaker Lee Tomlin has revealed on Twitter that his proposed return to Peterborough United should happen on Tuesday, much to the excitement of Posh fans.

It was revealed by the Peterborough Telegraph that Peterborough United were set to complete the signing of former star Lee Tomlin on loan for the rest of the season. The playmaker has been training with The Posh for the past few weeks, and it seemed that a loan deal was set to be finalised sooner rather than later.

However, politics on Cardiff City’s end has meant that the deal has taken more time than expected to be sealed. But, thankfully, the deal seems set to be completed on Tuesday, after the Cardff City man revealed that he is close to coming “back home”.

He said on Twitter:

In his first spell with The Posh, Tomlin made his way into the hearts of fans in a heartbeat. In 156 games for The Posh, Tomlin picked up 43 goals and 43 assists, helping them to promotion in 2011.

Not only did he pick up a reputation as a serial playmaker and goalscoring threat, but he also was seen as a bad boy. The 29-year-old has picked up five red cards in his career, and all of them came during his time at Peterborough United.

The only worry for Posh fans is if Tomlin will be at peak fitness to help Steve Evans’ side challenge for promotion to the Championship. The former Nottingham Forest man has not played a minute of football in all competitions since Cardiff’s promotion to the Premier League, not even for the reserves.

It is no doubt that the playmaker will be a serious threat if he is at full fitness, but if he isn’t up to pace, it could leave Posh fans disappointed.
