Former Peterborough United star Lee Tomlin is set to complete a return to The Posh on Tuesday, after the Cardiff City man announced that he is close to officially sealing a move which will see him return to London Road.
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”.
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.
It is no doubt that the playmaker will be a serious threat if Steve Evans can get him firing on all cylinders, Posh will have taken a big step forward in their promotion fight.
Posh fans were left over the moon by Tomlin’s tweet, having their say on the good news on Twitter:
