The Sun journalist Alan Nixon has claimed that Peterborough United are keen on a reunion with Portsmouth goalkeeper Luke McGee this summer.

Luke McGee has spent most of this season with Portsmouth playing second fiddle to Craig MacGillivray. Now, he is being linked with a summer move to fellow League One side Peterborough United.

Nixon tweeted the news on Sunday morning (see below).

McGee spent a season on loan with Peterborough United in the 2016/17 campaign, playing 45 games and keeping 10 clean sheets. The Posh are in the market for a new goalkeeper after they placed Aaron Chapman – the club’s number one for the majority of the season – on the transfer list.

McGee came through the youth academy at Premier League side Spurs, who he joined back in 2012. He made no first-team appearances for Spurs before making a loan move to Posh, where he made his professional debut.

After a successful spell at London Road, The 23-year-old made a permanent move to Portsmouth, putting pen to paper on a three-year deal at Fratton Park. McGee was a mainstay in the Pompey side during the 2017/18 season, playing in 50 games across all competitions.

The shot-stopper’s game time this season has been limited, however. The arrival of Craig MacGillivray from Shrewsbury Town has succumbed McGee to a place on the bench, restricting him to just five appearances this season, keeping two clean sheets along the way.
