Posh are well-known for recruiting young stars from lower leagues and selling them on for big profits and their centre-back exodus could quickly bring Nevett into first-team contention. Blackburn and Millwall have both displayed a willingness to give youngsters chances in the senior side too, so they could yet beat stern opposition to his signature.

The summer transfer window

Plenty of clubs have already done business this summer. Some have announced deals while others may be keeping things under wraps for the time being, with contracts yet to expire and the window not officially open yet.

Those dates are not far away though, so movement is imminent.

The transfer window officially opens this Friday while contracts will expire at the end of this month.

All of Blackburn Rovers, QPR, Ipswich Town, Southampton, Millwall and Peterborough United will be looking to do business, but time will tell if any of them are able to prize Nevett away from Rochdale with a bright future ahead of the promising Welshman.
